Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Las Vegas,
the W Flamingo Rd / S Valley View Blvd neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,

a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the W Flamingo Rd / S Valley View Blvd 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 94.9% 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, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the W Flamingo Rd / S Valley View Blvd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 94.2%, which is higher than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.4% of all neighborhoods in America.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the W Flamingo Rd / S Valley View Blvd 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, 85.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
