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: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Sealawn Dr / Ballard St
neighborhood, analysis shows that 33.3% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.9% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Also, while most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the
Sealawn Dr / Ballard St neighborhood stands out by having 95.9% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.9% of all American
Notable & Unique: People
The Sealawn Dr / Ballard St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (74.4%) than found in

is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Sealawn Dr / Ballard St
neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live
alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 50.8% of the
households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research
reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Also, if you are planning to retire in Florida, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Sealawn Dr / Ballard St
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Florida,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 95.6% of neighborhoods in
FL. If a Florida retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.

Slovak and English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Sealawn Dr / Ballard St neighborhood could be your paradise. With 27.1% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 3.9% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Sealawn Dr / Ballard St 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, 81.1% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
