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.

Cumbermeade Rd / Bluff Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 13.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily

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.
What is interesting to note, is that the Cumbermeade Rd / Bluff Rd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(50.5%) than are found in 97.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
