Good Hope real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Good Hope neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Good Hope neighborhood has more Lithuanian and Slovak ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.5% of this neighborhood's residents have Lithuanian ancestry and 1.9% have Slovak ancestry.

Good Hope is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Good Hope neighborhood stands out by having 96.5% of commuters doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.3% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Executives, managers and professionals make up 64.7% of the workforce in the Good Hope neighborhood which, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such high-level people than is found in 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

Furthermore, the Good Hope neighborhood has a greater proportion of government workers living in it than 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.

Notable & Unique: People

Think about the people you know personally. How many of them would purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in the Good Hope neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more "urban sophisticates" live than 95.6% of neighborhoods across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy, educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or not they live in or near a big city. In addition to being an excellent choice for urban sophisticates, this neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children and highly educated executives.

In addition, priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research, the folks of the Good Hope neighborhood may actually hold the key. 66.1% of its residents are married, which is a higher percentage than is found in 95.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Also, wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder. If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research, the Good Hope neighborhood is wealthier than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic of this neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.1% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Good Hope neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Good Hope neighborhood in Mechanicsburg are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 3.9% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 81.0% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Good Hope neighborhood, 64.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional 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 18.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (13.0%), and 11.5% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Good Hope neighborhood in Mechanicsburg, PA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (30.0%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (16.5%), and residents who report Asian roots (11.6%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (9.5%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (7.0%), among others. In addition, 12.1% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Good Hope neighborhood is English, spoken by 86.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include South Asian languages and Hindi (which is the official language of India).

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 Good Hope neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (52.0% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (96.5%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
