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 Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood has more
Austrian and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 1.7% have Croatian ancestry.
Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 15.7% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, an extraordinary 12.6% of the residents of the
Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Also, if you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 10.7% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of California. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 99.4% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 99.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
Furthermore, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 50.1% of the residential real estate vacant, the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
