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
Tortolita 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
Tortolita community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, if you are an executive or professional seeking a neighborhood affording
an executive lifestyle, or just wanting to find where other executives
live in the area, the Tortolita neighborhood should be
on your list. It has an enviable mix of spacious homes, relatively stable
real estate values, and residents that include a number of wealthy
executives, managers, and professionals. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
analysis places it as one of the top 11.5% executive lifestyle
neighborhoods in the state of Arizona.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Tortolita neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 34.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.9% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Tortolita neighborhood has more
Belgian and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Belgian ancestry and 3.1% have Native American ancestry.
Tortolita is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
More residents of the Tortolita neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 96.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Tortolita neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Furthermore, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Tortolita neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 97.9% of all American neighborhoods.
