The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Vista Pointe neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Vista Pointe community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, the types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 50.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.3% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Vista Pointe neighborhood has more
Spanish and Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 8.3% have Scottish ancestry.
Vista Pointe is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Vista Pointe
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.2% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.5% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Vista Pointe neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Vista Pointe neighborhood. A whopping 56.8% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 97.0% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Vista Pointe neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 74.7% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.5% of American neighborhoods.
