About Lakewood, NJ (Leisure Village East)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Leisure Village East median real estate price is $221,707, which is less expensive than 74.2% of New Jersey neighborhoods and 74.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Leisure Village East is currently $1,702, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 51.4% of New Jersey neighborhoods.

Leisure Village East is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Lakewood, New Jersey.

Leisure Village East real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) townhomes and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Leisure Village East neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Leisure Village East has a 12.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 65.1% 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.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: People

In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the Leisure Village East neighborhood stands out as being ranked among the lowest 0.0% of neighborhoods affected by this global issue.

In addition, one of the most interesting things about the Leisure Village East neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 60.7% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Leisure Village East neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 18.8% of residents worked from home. This may not seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher percentage of people working from home than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston, and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.

Also, while most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Leisure Village East neighborhood stands out by having 95.3% of commuters doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.4% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Leisure Village East neighborhood could be your paradise. With 55.7% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 1.0% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.

In addition, the Leisure Village East neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 90.9% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Leisure Village East stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 88.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Leisure Village East neighborhood has more Italian and Russian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 27.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Italian ancestry and 6.5% have Russian ancestry.

Leisure Village East is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Hebrew at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.2% of the neighborhoods in America.


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.

Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood.
