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 Tillamook,
the Netarts / Oceanside 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 Netarts / Oceanside 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, Netarts / Oceanside 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 Netarts / Oceanside 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Netarts / Oceanside 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 47.4%, which is higher than 98.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood has more
Swiss and Dutch ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 6.5% have Dutch ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 98.7% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 13.5% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 97.6% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Also, our research reveals that 94.2% of commuters who live in the
Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
96.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, the Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood has one of the highest
concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.8%
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. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in
this particular Tillamook neighborhood.
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Netarts / Oceanside neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.3% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Oregon, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Oregon.
