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.

any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 1.4% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park
neighborhood, analysis shows that 22.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, our research reveals that 96.6% of commuters who live in the
Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 82.3% 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, the Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park 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 92.3% 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.
Also of note, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Hacienda de Valencia / Mesa Shadows Mobile Home Park 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 39.0%, which is higher than 97.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
