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 Salinas,
the Paseo Grande / Moreno Cir neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

or fishers. But the Paseo Grande / Moreno Cir neighborhood truly stands

this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers

speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Paseo Grande / Moreno Cir

(43.5%) than are found in 95.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Paseo Grande / Moreno Cir neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.4% 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, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 1.2%, the Paseo Grande / Moreno Cir neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
