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: Occupations
With 62.0% of employed workers living in the
Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.9% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 86.0% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.7% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd choose to walk to work each day
(42.2%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 18.8% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood has more
Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Butner Rd / Rifle Range Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
