Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Van Vleck / Kyburz neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Van Vleck / Kyburz is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Van Vleck / Kyburz neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 37.1%, which is higher than 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Van Vleck / Kyburz neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.0% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
