When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Uwharrie / Flint Hill 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 56.4%, which is higher than 99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 95.7% of all neighborhoods in America, with 31.4% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes.
