from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 94.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 91.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.4%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln
What is interesting to note, is that the W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.4%) than are found in 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 1.0%, the W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 95.5% 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.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W San Ysidro Blvd / Sunset Ln 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, 83.9% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
