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
Azurite / Alabaster 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
Azurite / Alabaster 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 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Azurite / Alabaster 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're planning where to retire, the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood in
Mesa is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has
above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in AZ,
offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an
enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better
for retirement living than 85.5% of the neighborhoods
in Arizona. If you are considering retiring to Arizona, this
is a good neighborhood to look at.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood has more
Canadian and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 6.6% have Norwegian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 23.0% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.5% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 70.5% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 38.2% of the residential real estate vacant, the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Also of note, the Azurite / Alabaster neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 84.7% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
