About Winthrop, MA (Winthrop Highlands)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Winthrop Highlands median real estate price is $448,507, which is more expensive than 62.1% of the neighborhoods in Massachusetts and 83.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Winthrop Highlands is currently $1,445, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 50.6% of Massachusetts neighborhoods.

Winthrop Highlands is an urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Winthrop, Massachusetts. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Winthrop Highlands real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Winthrop Highlands has a 13.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 70.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Winthrop Highlands neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, Winthrop Highlands 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, corner bodegas, stores on the first floor and apartments above, former grand Victorian residences converted into apartments, three-deckers built shoulder-to-shoulder, duplexes. Such building types define the real estate of neighborhoods dominated by small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. Many are in older core neighborhoods of Eastern and Midwestern cities, or historic town centers in their hinterlands. If you wax romantic about the look and feel of such neighborhoods, with fresh pizza, falafel and an independent florist at the corner, then you might find the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood worth a close look. This neighborhood is an absolutely outstanding example of the dominance of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings compared to neighborhoods across the nation, as they make up a substantial portion of this neighborhood's real estate stock. In fact, no less than 35.8% of the real estate here is made up of such dwellings, which is higher than 95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood has more Portuguese and Italian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 24.8% have Italian ancestry.

Winthrop Highlands is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 47.4% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood stands out within Massachusetts for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider. Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 9.5% of college-friendly places to live in MA.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood in Winthrop are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 62.2% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 4.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 80.1% of America'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 Winthrop Highlands neighborhood, 37.4% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 34.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (13.9%), and 13.8% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood in Winthrop, MA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Italian (24.8%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (22.0%), and residents who report English roots (8.0%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (4.8%), along with some German ancestry residents (4.7%), among others.

The most common language spoken in the Winthrop Highlands neighborhood is English, spoken by 67.2% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, Arabic and Italian.

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 Winthrop Highlands neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (33.9% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.
