About Richfield, MN (Post Rd / E 70th St)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Post Rd / E 70th St real estate is primarily composed of apartments and renters, so no median house value data are available. The average rental price in Post Rd / E 70th St is currently $647, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 94.7% of Minnesota neighborhoods.

Post Rd / E 70th St is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Richfield, Minnesota.

Post Rd / E 70th St 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 renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Post Rd / E 70th St neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Post Rd / E 70th St has a 12.9% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 67.6% 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

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Richfield, the Post Rd / E 70th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: People

The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 73.4%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

The Post Rd / E 70th St neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (63.3%) than found in 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In fact, 90.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.6% of American neighborhoods.

Also of note, this neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars.

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 Post Rd / E 70th St neighborhood in Richfield are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 63.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (3.2%), and 3.2% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

There are also a number of people of Norwegian ancestry (5.7%), and residents who report Swedish roots (5.2%), and some of the residents are also of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (5.2%), along with some African ancestry residents (4.9%), among others. In addition, 27.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work
