Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 12 residents per square mile, Ranchos de Taos / Talpa is less crowded than 96.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Ranchos de Taos / Talpa 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 32.5%, which is higher than 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

In addition, astoundingly, the Ranchos de Taos / Talpa neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they become divorced.
