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
One of the really interesting characteristics about the
Bayshore neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 0.1% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of California.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bayshore neighborhood has more
Asian and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 60.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 0.9% have Brazilian ancestry.
Bayshore is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 17.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Bayshore
What is interesting to note, is that the Bayshore
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(57.8%) than are found in 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the Bayshore neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 33.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
Furthermore, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.8% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Bayshore 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.
