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: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Heritage Creek / South Park View
neighborhood than in 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Heritage Creek / South Park View neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
32.6% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 61.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Heritage Creek / South Park View is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 62.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 96.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Heritage Creek / South Park View neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.4%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, of note, 59.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Heritage Creek / South Park View neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Furthermore, the Heritage Creek / South Park View neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 91.6% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.9% 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.
