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 Flagler Beach City Center 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, Flagler Beach City Center 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 Flagler Beach City Center 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 50.2%, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Flagler Beach City Center neighborhood has more
British and French Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 2.9% have French Canadian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Flagler Beach City Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 15.7% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
98.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, our research reveals that 94.1% of commuters who live in the
Flagler Beach City Center neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
