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 San Jose,
the S Jackson Ave / Story Rd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

S Jackson Ave / Story Rd neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.3%

higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.5%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single

neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the S Jackson Ave / Story Rd neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
