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: People
One of the most interesting things about the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd

reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
99.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd

service workers than 98.6% of all American neighborhoods.

this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 1.5% have Eastern European ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 97.4% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 91.8%, which is higher than 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 79.8% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 97.3% of all neighborhoods in America.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Manchaca Rd / Fortview Rd stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 83.2% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
