Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Cisco / Smooth Hummocks neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront

In addition to being coastal, Cisco / Smooth Hummocks is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Cisco / Smooth Hummocks 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 44.1%, which is higher than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
