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: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Groveton City Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 17.7% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.1% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Groveton City Center neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 27.2% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.0% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Groveton City Center neighborhood has a greater proportion of
government workers living in it than 97.6% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the Groveton City Center neighborhood has more
English ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 18.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 18.8 residents per square mile, Groveton City Center is less crowded than 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Groveton City Center 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 51.3%, which is higher than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 97.6% of all neighborhoods in America, with 38.2% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.
Notable & Unique: People

crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can

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 Texas.
