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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr 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, Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr 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, the Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 55.7% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr 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 40.2%, which is higher than 97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr 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 84.3% 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.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 23.2% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.2% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 1.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Hamlet Dr / Faust Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (57.7%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
