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: Modes of Transportation
In the Perris Blvd / Iris Ave neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
27.0% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Perris Blvd / Iris Ave
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Perris Blvd / Iris Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.7% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.1%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Perris Blvd / Iris Ave neighborhood has more
Belgian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Belgian ancestry.
Perris Blvd / Iris Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Perris Blvd / Iris Ave neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.6% 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, 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 Perris Blvd / Iris Ave 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 97.4% of all American neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Perris Blvd / Iris Ave 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, 87.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
