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 N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd 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, N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd 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 N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd 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 37.7%, which is higher than 96.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd 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, 81.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd neighborhood has more
Croatian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Croatian ancestry.
N Barfield Dr / N Collier Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.4% 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 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
