Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Wixom City Center stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing.

In fact, 81.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
