When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
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.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
McDade neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
McDade community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
McDade neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Also, if you are an executive or professional seeking a neighborhood affording
an executive lifestyle, or just wanting to find where other executives
live in the area, the McDade neighborhood should be
on your list. It has an enviable mix of spacious homes, relatively stable
real estate values, and residents that include a number of wealthy
executives, managers, and professionals. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
analysis places it as one of the top 12.1% executive lifestyle
neighborhoods in the state of Alabama.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children and active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the
McDade neighborhood stands out by having 98.1% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8% of all American
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 3.9% of employed workers living in the
McDade neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.6% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the McDade neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
Furthermore, one way that the McDade neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
