When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

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.

Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Route 17 / County Rd 761 neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.9%, which is higher than 96.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Route 17 / County Rd 761 neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 81.4% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
