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: People
According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, East Lake
is among the best neighborhoods for families in Florida. In fact, this neighborhood is
more family-friendly than 99.2% of neighborhoods
in the entire state of Florida. Its combination of top public
schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied single family homes gives
this area the look and feel of a "Leave It to Beaver" episode. Many other
families also live here, making it easy to socialize and develop a strong
sense of community. In addition, the high number of college-educated parents
influences the academic success of the local schools. Overall, you will
find all of the amenities a family needs to thrive in the
East Lake neighborhood.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, college students and urban sophisticates.
In addition, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
East Lake neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the East Lake neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 14.5% 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 98.1% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the East Lake neighborhood has more
Hungarian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Hungarian ancestry.
East Lake is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Greek at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the East Lake neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 96.7% 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.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the East Lake 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, 84.4% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
