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 Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd neighborhood has more
Asian and Iranian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 76.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 0.8% have Iranian ancestry.
Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 40.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Chinese at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(55.7%) than are found in 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 6.8% of residents in
the Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
98.6% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
Some neighborhoods have residents that are more educated than others. But
in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis reveals that 34.8% of the adults here have
earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
96.9% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
neighborhood has 8.4% of its adults with a graduate degree. If you are
highly educated, you may have much in common with many of your neighbors here.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 3.4% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, if you are an executive or professional seeking a neighborhood affording
an executive lifestyle, or just wanting to find where other executives
live in the area, the Prospect Rd / S De Anza Blvd neighborhood should be
on your list. It has an enviable mix of spacious homes, relatively stable
real estate values, and residents that include a number of wealthy
executives, managers, and professionals. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
analysis places it as one of the top 10.7% executive lifestyle
neighborhoods in the state of California.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and college students.
