In the Ganado Town Center neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 14.7% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher

neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Ganado Town 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 50.4%, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Ganado

of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Ganado Town Center neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 95.0% of the neighborhoods
in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is
a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.
