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: Diversity
Did you know that the Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd neighborhood has more
Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 62.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry.
Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 26.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Vietnamese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(48.8%) than are found in 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% 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 Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd 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, 92.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, if you love row houses and attached homes, you will probably really like the Cropley Ave / Piedmont Rd neighborhood. The ambiance, the charm, of row houses is something special. And in sheer abundance of row houses, this neighborhood truly stands out. The real estate here has a higher proportion of row houses and attached homes than nearly any neighborhood in America. In fact, 34.6% of the residential real estate here is classified as row houses and attached homes.
