The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 26.5% 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 Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 72.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.9% 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 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% 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.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr neighborhood, is that an incredible 91.2% of the homes here were built in this era. So when you walk its streets or drive through, this neighborhood has a look and feel that harkens to that era in American life, a very important slice of Americana.
Also of note, 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 Samgerry Dr / Rimgrove Dr 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 97.5% of all American neighborhoods.
