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: Diversity
Did you know that the Milpitas City Center neighborhood has more
Asian and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 62.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 0.8% have Iranian ancestry.
Milpitas City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 9.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Milpitas City Center neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.1%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 4.0% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Milpitas City Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, according to NeighborhoodScout's research, Milpitas City Center is
better suited for first-time home buyers than 87.8%
of neighborhoods in the state. Most homes here are priced below the
state's median house value, yet maintain comparably good appreciation
rates over the last decade relative to other neighborhoods in California.
Along with an exclusive multi-metric measure of neighborhood quality
developed by NeighborhoodScout that scores high here in this neighborhood,
this means that buying into the neighborhood
is not only an accessible option but considered a decent first time
home buyer choice for building equity in your first home, while being
in a quality neighborhood
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 69.8% of the workforce
in the Milpitas City Center neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 98.0% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
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 Milpitas City Center
What is interesting to note, is that the Milpitas City Center
