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 Walnut,
the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Walnut City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 33.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Chinese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher

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

for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Walnut City Center
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(47.0%) than are found in 96.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Walnut City Center 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 98.2% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, one way that the Walnut City Center neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Also of note, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.1% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Walnut City Center 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.
