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.

Danish and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly

other professional. With such a high concentration, this truly shapes
the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
Notable & Unique: People
If knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Hopmeadow St / Hilltop Dr neighborhood, where 33.5% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 96.3%
of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 4.1% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Hopmeadow St / Hilltop Dr neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Hopmeadow St / Hilltop Dr neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

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.
