Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Questa Village Center 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.

The vacancy rate here is 58.5%, which is higher than 99.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

One of the notable things about Questa Village Center is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness.

In the Questa Village Center neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 12.6% of residents worked from home.

Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.


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. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures.
