About Marion, OH (Oak Knoll)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Oak Knoll median real estate price is $76,758, which is less expensive than 80.6% of Ohio neighborhoods and 80.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Oak Knoll is currently $967, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 67.0% of the neighborhoods in Ohio.

Oak Knoll is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Marion, Ohio.

Oak Knoll real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Oak Knoll neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

Oak Knoll has a 14.7% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 73.9% 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

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 Marion, the Oak Knoll neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Oak Knoll neighborhood than in 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many laborers and manufacturers.

Notable & Unique: People

The Oak Knoll neighborhood is unique for having just 5.1% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.1% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Oak Knoll neighborhood has more Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 23.8% of this neighborhood's residents have Irish ancestry.

Oak Knoll is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% 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 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Oak Knoll neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.1% of all American neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Oak Knoll neighborhood in Marion are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 85.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 55.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 93.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Oak Knoll neighborhood, 41.5% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 26.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (15.8%), and 15.3% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. 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. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Oak Knoll neighborhood in Marion, OH, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (30.9%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (23.8%), and residents who report English roots (6.1%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (2.4%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (1.9%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Oak Knoll neighborhood is English, spoken by 97.8% of households.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Oak Knoll neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (42.2% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (77.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (19.5%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
