May real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the May neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

In May, the current vacancy rate is 3.0%, which is a lower rate of vacancies than 87.4% of all neighborhoods in the U.S. This means that the housing supply in May is very tight compared to the demand for property here.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Riverside, the May neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the May neighborhood has more Romanian and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of this neighborhood's residents have Romanian ancestry and 1.3% have Armenian ancestry.

May is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the May neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 29.8% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.7% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.0% of all neighborhoods in America, with 39.9% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.

In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the May 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, 82.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the May neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact, despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has 42.8% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 97.5% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the May neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 9.0% 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 96.4% of all neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the May neighborhood in Riverside are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 53.8% of the neighborhoods in America. With 27.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 68.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the May neighborhood, 42.8% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 25.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (18.7%), and 12.5% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the May neighborhood in Riverside, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (59.0%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (8.1%), and residents who report Irish roots (6.9%), and some of the residents are also of Romanian ancestry (5.9%), along with some English ancestry residents (4.9%), among others. In addition, 32.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the May neighborhood is English, spoken by 50.4% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (41.7%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in May neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (31.1% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (9.0%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (84.1%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (10.8%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
