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 W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Danish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 5.1% have Danish ancestry.
W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.4% 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 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 20.7% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
The W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
5.4% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of Colorado. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, owner-occupied real estate dominates the W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 96.1% of neighborhoods in America. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, 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 W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave 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 98.9% of all American neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W 100th Ave / W 99th Ave stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 91.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
