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.

Cuban and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 34.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 9.6% have Jamaican ancestry.
Krome Ave / SW 136th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 60.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 95.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Krome Ave / SW 136th St
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.1% 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 96.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
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 Krome Ave / SW 136th St
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.5%) than are found in 95.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 93.1% 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 families with school-aged children.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood. A whopping 70.0% 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 98.4% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Furthermore, one way that the Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Also of note, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.2% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Finally, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Krome Ave / SW 136th St neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.9% of all American neighborhoods.
