About Miami, FL (Lemon City)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Lemon City median real estate price is $152,137, which is less expensive than 63.6% of Florida neighborhoods and 63.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Lemon City is currently $1,024, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 77.8% of Florida neighborhoods.

Lemon City is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Miami, Florida.

Lemon City 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 Lemon City neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Lemon City has a 16.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 79.0% 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: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences?

But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Lemon City neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. 26.0% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all.

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 82.0% 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.

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 Lemon City 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 93.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 36.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 79.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Lemon City neighborhood, 50.4% 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 31.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (9.8%), and 8.8% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Lemon City neighborhood in Miami, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Haitian (43.2%). There are also a number of people of Cuban ancestry (5.7%), and residents who report Dominican roots (5.7%), and some of the residents are also of Puerto Rican ancestry (3.4%), along with some German ancestry residents (2.4%), among others.

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 Lemon City neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (30.3% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (50.1%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (36.7%) and 11.5% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors 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.
