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 San Fidel / San Mateo neighborhood has more
Spanish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 21.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 6.0% have Native American ancestry.
San Fidel / San Mateo is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the San Fidel / San Mateo neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 97.1% of all neighborhoods in America, with 36.0% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the San Fidel / San Mateo neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.3%, which is higher than 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 8.6% of the people in the San Fidel / San Mateo
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the San Fidel / San Mateo neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 13.9% 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 97.8% 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, our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
