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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Route 1 / Mainsail Cir neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Route 1 / Mainsail Cir community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, if you are planning to retire in Florida, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Route 1 / Mainsail Cir
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Florida,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 97.8% of neighborhoods in
FL. If a Florida retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and highly educated executives.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Route 1 / Mainsail Cir neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Route 1 / Mainsail Cir neighborhood has more
Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Ukrainian ancestry.
Route 1 / Mainsail Cir is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Route 1 / Mainsail Cir stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 98.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Route 1 / Mainsail Cir 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 33.2%, which is higher than 95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
