Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 99.0% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 50.1%, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
