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 Kissimmee,
the Celebration neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Celebration neighborhood has more
British and Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 1.4% have Croatian ancestry.
Celebration is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Celebration neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 13.6% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 97.7% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: People
The Celebration neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 94.4% of Florida neighborhoods
for executive living, based on the wealthy, educated professionals,
executives, and managers who choose to reside here, the spacious homes
that are prominent features of the real estate in the neighborhood,
and the high real estate appreciation rates found here relative to
other neighborhoods in the state.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Celebration 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 54.3%, which is higher than 98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Celebration neighborhood. A whopping 66.6% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
