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.

99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Mcintosh Rd / Central Sarasota Pky neighborhood has more
Hungarian and Austrian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.4% of

Mcintosh Rd / Central Sarasota Pky is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Mcintosh Rd / Central Sarasota Pky 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 42.4%, which is higher than 97.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Mcintosh Rd / Central Sarasota Pky 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, 80.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
