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 Cape Coral,
the Bayshore Dr / Bayshore Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Bayshore Dr / Bayshore Ave neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Bayshore Dr / Bayshore Ave is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Bayshore Dr / Bayshore Ave 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 41.0%, which is higher than 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Bayshore Dr / Bayshore 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 97.1% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Austrian and Dominican ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 5.0% have Dominican ancestry.
Bayshore Dr / Bayshore Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
