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.

its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
99.9% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 85.1%
of the employed people here make a living as an executive, a manager, or
other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: People
Some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's

earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in

highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.

alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 52.1% of the

British and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly

than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Sand Hill Rd / El Camino Real neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Sand Hill Rd / El Camino Real neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 94.8% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Sand Hill Rd / El Camino Real neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 93.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.0% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Sand Hill Rd / El Camino Real neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 89.4%, which is higher than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
