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: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 35.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.9% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood has more
Canadian and English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry and 26.2% have English ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.4%
of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce
more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they
become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Zephyrhills neighborhood.
In addition, the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood is unique for having just
4.3% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.9% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 64.5% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr 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 34.6%, which is higher than 96.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Gall Blvd / Palm Grove Dr 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 80.7% 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.
