When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.

neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Borger City Center

the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Borger City Center neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 44.0%, which is higher than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
