Wood Lake is a remote neighborhood (based on population density) located in Valentine, Nebraska.

Wood Lake real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Wood Lake neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Wood Lake. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 20.9%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 86.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (12.0%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

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.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Wood Lake neighborhood, analysis shows that 33.3% 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 99.9% 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.

Also, more people in Wood Lake choose to walk to work each day (27.8%) 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.

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 Wood Lake neighborhood may actually hold the key. 79.1% of its residents are married, which is a higher percentage than is found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, if you are planning to retire in Nebraska, this neighborhood should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, Wood Lake 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 Nebraska, 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 99.8% of neighborhoods in NE. If a Nebraska retirement is in your future, this neighborhood should be one of the places you visit.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 0 residents per square mile, Wood Lake is less crowded than 99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Wood Lake neighborhood has more Danish and British ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Danish ancestry and 3.1% have British ancestry.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history. But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Wood Lake neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 14.6% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Wood Lake neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Residents of the Wood Lake neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 59.9% 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 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Wood Lake neighborhood in Valentine are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 45.2% of the neighborhoods in America. With 24.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 63.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Wood Lake neighborhood, 52.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 16.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in farming, forestry, or commercial fishing (14.6%), and 9.0% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Wood Lake neighborhood in Valentine, NE, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (39.6%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (14.1%), and residents who report English roots (13.0%), and some of the residents are also of Danish ancestry (6.5%), along with some Swedish ancestry residents (6.0%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Wood Lake neighborhood is English, spoken by 96.8% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (3.2%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Wood Lake neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (59.9% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (59.9%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (27.8%) and 11.4% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
