Harbor is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Brookings, Oregon. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Harbor real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) mobile homes and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Harbor neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Harbor has a 15.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 74.9% of American neighborhoods). A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (10.1%), which can occur in some markets dominated by colleges or vacation homes. If you live here year round, you will find many of the homes or apartments are empty for all or a portion of the year.

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

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Unpopulated, and rural, the Harbor 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 94.8% of the neighborhoods in America. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Harbor neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, Harbor is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of. One of the notable things about Harbor is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.

In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 98.8% of all neighborhoods in America, with 45.2% 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.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Harbor neighborhood has more Scottish and Welsh ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 3.3% have Welsh ancestry.

Harbor is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% 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 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history. But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the Harbor neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 9.0% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Residents of the Harbor neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 68.5% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.
