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.

Danish and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly

this neighborhood's residents have Danish ancestry and 16.2% have Norwegian ancestry.
Ramsey City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America.

three. But households in the Ramsey City Center neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's

sense of community. In addition, the high number of college-educated parents
influences the academic success of the local schools. Overall, you will
find all of the amenities a family needs to thrive in the Ramsey
City Center neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the Ramsey City Center neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood.
Furthermore, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Ramsey City Center neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 99.2% of all American neighborhoods.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Ramsey 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. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 81.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
