When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Fox Run neighborhood has more
Croatian and Slovak ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Croatian ancestry and 3.5% have Slovak ancestry.
Fox Run is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Italian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, Fox Run
is among the best neighborhoods for families in Pennsylvania. In fact, this neighborhood is
more family-friendly than 99.4% of neighborhoods
in the entire state of Pennsylvania. Its combination of top public
schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied single family homes gives
this area the look and feel of a "Leave It to Beaver" episode. Many other
families also live here, making it easy to socialize and develop a strong
sense of community. In addition, the high number of college-educated parents
influences the academic success of the local schools. Overall, you will
find all of the amenities a family needs to thrive in the
Fox Run neighborhood.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates and highly educated executives.
In addition, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 98.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Fox Run neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, real estate in the Fox Run neighborhood is almost exclusively owner-occupied. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher rate of owner-occupied housing than is found in 98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. If you are seeking to rent, this neighborhood may not have many options, but high rates of ownership often indicate stability in a neighborhood. With a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Fox Run neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
Furthermore, 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 Fox Run 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 95.0% of all American neighborhoods.
