Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Salome,
the Town Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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 Salome
Town Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 25.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Salome Town Center neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

In fact, with 38.9% of the residential real estate vacant, the Salome Town Center neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.0% 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.
