About Coos Bay, OR (Empire)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Empire median real estate price is $129,191, which is less expensive than 91.8% of Oregon neighborhoods and 91.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Empire is currently $934, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 77.1% of Oregon neighborhoods.

Empire is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Coos Bay, Oregon. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

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

Empire has a 11.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 61.5% 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 Coos Bay, the Empire neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Empire 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, Empire 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.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Empire neighborhood has more Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 7.9% of this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.

Empire is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Yiddish at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

The Empire neighborhood stands out nationally for having a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than 95.1% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work, and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.


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 Empire neighborhood in Coos Bay are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 87.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 39.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 82.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Empire neighborhood, 40.5% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 25.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (17.1%), and 16.5% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Empire neighborhood in Coos Bay, OR, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (19.4%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (16.1%), and residents who report Irish roots (13.8%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (9.8%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (8.8%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Empire neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.2% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (3.1%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Empire neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (48.7% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (80.3%) 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 (13.6%) and 5.3% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
