Linwood median real estate price is $192,588, which is less expensive than 85.8% of New Jersey neighborhoods and 85.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Linwood is currently $2,308, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 90.9% of the neighborhoods in New Jersey.

Linwood is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Linwood real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Linwood neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Linwood has a 13.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 70.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.
