Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Sears neighborhood has more
West Indian and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have West Indian ancestry and 1.9% have Swiss ancestry.
Sears is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Sears
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
43.1% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 97.7% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Sears neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 91.2% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Sears 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 Sears 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 44.9%, which is higher than 98.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Sears neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
