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: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Buffalo neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
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 39.0 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 91.3% of America. 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.
In addition, 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 52.7%, which is higher than 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 97.0% of all neighborhoods in America, with 35.7% 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.
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.
9.0% 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 96.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Buffalo neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
