Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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.

In fact, with 48.7% of the residential real estate vacant, the Wesser / Nantahala neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for.

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.
