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.

La Costa Ave / Levante St neighborhood.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives and urban sophisticates.
In addition, wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the La Costa Ave / Levante St neighborhood is wealthier than 95.5%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The La Costa Ave / Levante St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
97.2% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the La Costa Ave / Levante St
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
96.8% 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.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the La Costa Ave / Levante St neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 1.0%, the La Costa Ave / Levante St neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the La Costa Ave / Levante St 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, 81.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
