Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The real estate in the S Sapodilla Ave / Fern St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 96.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.5% of American neighborhoods.

In addition, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the S Sapodilla Ave / Fern St neighborhood. A whopping 83.1% 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 99.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new. In fact, the concentration of newer homes here is so great that they completely dominate the landscape. In most neighborhoods, there is a mixture of ages of residential real estate, but here it is almost completely built during one time frame: 2000 through today.

Furthermore, the S Sapodilla Ave / Fern St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. 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 90.6% 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.

Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 34.2% of the residential real estate vacant, the S Sapodilla Ave / Fern St neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.

This may not seem like a large number, but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in 96.8% 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.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The Neighbors: Occupations
