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: 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 Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 26.0% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.9% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest neighborhood has more
Iranian and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 2.5% have Native American ancestry.
Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
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
Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.5% 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 95.6%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest 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 91.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 54.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Arrowhead Springs / Rimforest neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
