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 Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood has more
Eastern European and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Eastern European ancestry and 8.0% have Arab ancestry.
Fairview Knolls / Herberts is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 98.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, if you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.8% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
Also, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 96.8% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children and highly educated executives.
Finally, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If
so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research
revealed that a full 67.9% of the adults living in the
Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's
degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7%
of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.
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.
More residents of the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
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 Fairview Knolls / Herberts
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.5% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.7%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Executives, managers and professionals make up 63.2% of the workforce
in the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood which, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such
high-level people than is found in 95.1% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, real estate in the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood. This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.6% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Fairview Knolls / Herberts neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
