Homestead is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Blackshear, Georgia.

Homestead real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Homestead neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Homestead has a 12.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 64.6% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

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.

The Neighbors: Occupations
