Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Veazey neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 30.8% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Veazey
neighborhood, analysis shows that 16.0% 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
98.7% 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.

Veazey neighborhood stands out by having 95.6% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work

Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Veazey neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (53.5%) 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: People

should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Veazey

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 46.64 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 90.1% of America.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Veazey 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 32.5%, which is higher than 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
