About Santa Barbara, CA (Hope Ranch)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Hope Ranch median real estate price is $2,452,421, which is more expensive than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in California and 99.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Hope Ranch is currently $3,862, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 92.5% of the neighborhoods in California.

Hope Ranch is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Santa Barbara, California. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Hope Ranch real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Hope Ranch neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Hope Ranch has a 12.9% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 67.7% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Hope Ranch neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, Hope Ranch is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

Notable & Unique: People

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Hope Ranch neighborhood in Santa Barbara are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 89.8% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 1.3% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 86.6% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Hope Ranch neighborhood, 67.6% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 26.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (3.7%), and 3.0% in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Hope Ranch neighborhood is English, spoken by 88.5% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (6.6%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Hope Ranch neighborhood in Santa Barbara, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as English (13.7%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (12.2%), and residents who report German roots (12.0%), and some of the residents are also of Mexican ancestry (9.1%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (8.9%), among others. In addition, 11.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Hope Ranch neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (55.5% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (76.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also bicycle to get to work (8.5%) and 8.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute.
