About Monticello, IN (Buffalo)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Buffalo median real estate price is $129,404, which is more expensive than 55.9% of the neighborhoods in Indiana and 30.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Buffalo is currently $884, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 50.5% of Indiana neighborhoods.

Buffalo is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Monticello, Indiana.

Buffalo real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Buffalo neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Buffalo. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 50.5%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (39.0%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Monticello, the Buffalo neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Significantly, 3.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Polish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Buffalo 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 50.5%, which is higher than 98.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 97.2% of all neighborhoods in America, with 36.5% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.

Furthermore, uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 39 residents per square mile, Buffalo is less crowded than 91.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods. One of the notable things about Buffalo is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Buffalo neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact, despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has 44.0% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 98.1% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research, the folks of the Buffalo neighborhood may actually hold the key. 66.5% of its residents are married, which is a higher percentage than is found in 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, if you're planning where to retire, the Buffalo neighborhood in Monticello is a great option to consider. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive retirement dream area analysis, it's peaceful and quiet, has above average safety ratings compared to other neighborhoods in IN, offers a wide range of housing options, and has already attracted an enviable mix of college educated seniors. This neighborhood ranks as better for retirement living than 88.1% of the neighborhoods in Indiana. If you are considering retiring to Indiana, this is a good neighborhood to look at.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the Buffalo neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having, on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America. 8.2% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour + round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.1% of all neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Buffalo neighborhood in Monticello are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 43.5% of the neighborhoods in America. With 20.8% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 58.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Buffalo neighborhood, 44.0% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 20.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (17.4%), and 14.8% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Buffalo neighborhood in Monticello, IN, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (20.2%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (19.3%), and residents who report Italian roots (6.6%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (6.4%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (5.8%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Buffalo neighborhood is English, spoken by 91.5% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Polish.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Buffalo neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (48.0% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (8.2%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (83.3%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (14.4%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
