About Miami, FL (SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave median real estate price is $233,753, which is more expensive than 62.8% of the neighborhoods in Florida and 60.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave is currently $1,092, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 75.1% of Florida neighborhoods.

SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Miami, Florida.

SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave has a 12.1% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 64.7% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Miami, the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents. What is interesting to note, is that the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (71.9%) than are found in 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood has more Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 30.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry.

SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 95.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave 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 96.3% 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.

In addition, 97.8% of the real estate in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Furthermore, the real estate in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 81.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.4% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 98.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 10.3% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.4% of all neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People

The SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood stands out for having an average per capita income lower than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in the United States.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees are often the backbone of the local economy. In the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and service workers than 96.7% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 22.3% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood in Miami are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 38.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 82.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood, 43.8% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 34.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (12.5%), and 8.9% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood in Miami, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Cuban (30.2%). There are also a number of people of Puerto Rican ancestry (5.6%), and residents who report South American roots (3.5%), and some of the residents are also of Dominican ancestry (1.7%). In addition, 71.9% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 95.5% of households. Some people also speak English (4.1%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in SW 1st St / SW 17th Ave neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (33.2% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (10.3%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (56.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (23.8%) and 8.3% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
