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.

This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Afton / Rosedale Village 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.
