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
Astoundingly, the Las Villas neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.2%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Scottsdale neighborhood.
In addition, if you are planning to retire in Arizona, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Las Villas
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Arizona,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 95.2% of neighborhoods in
AZ. If a Arizona retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Las Villas neighborhood has more
Greek and Lithuanian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 1.6% have Lithuanian ancestry.
Las Villas is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Las Villas
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.6% 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
96.9% 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 93.7% of commuters who live in the
Las Villas neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Las Villas neighborhood could be your paradise. With 45.7% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 1.5% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Las Villas stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 81.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
