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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Finland neighborhood has more
Swedish and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 16.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swedish ancestry and 10.1% have Finnish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Finland 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 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Finland 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 Finland 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 47.9%, which is higher than 98.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Finland neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 68.6% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 97.6% of the neighborhoods
In addition, if you are planning to retire in Minnesota, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Finland
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in Minnesota,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 97.0% of neighborhoods in
MN. If a Minnesota retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
