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

law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the McCormick Ranch neighborhood, where 31.4% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in

and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 95.3%
of the neighborhoods in America.
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 McCormick Ranch neighborhood could be your paradise. With 38.9% 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 2.0% 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 McCormick Ranch 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, 88.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 34.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the McCormick Ranch neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.7% 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.
