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, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Blaisdell neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Blaisdell 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
Blaisdell community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Also, if you're planning where to retire, the Blaisdell neighborhood in
Yuma is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has
above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in AZ,
offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an
enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better
for retirement living than 87.4% of the neighborhoods
in Arizona. If you are considering retiring to Arizona, this
is a good neighborhood to look at.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Blaisdell neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Welsh ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 4.5% have Welsh ancestry.
Blaisdell is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% 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 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Blaisdell is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, the Blaisdell neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 56.0% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.5% 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, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Blaisdell neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 95.3% of neighborhoods in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 42.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Blaisdell neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.6% 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.
