About Houston, TX (Genoa)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Genoa median real estate price is $23,583, which is less expensive than 99.6% of Texas neighborhoods and 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The average rental price in Genoa is currently $836, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 71.4% of Texas neighborhoods.

Genoa is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Houston, Texas.

Genoa real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Genoa 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.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Genoa. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 35.4%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

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: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Genoa neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact, despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has 54.5% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 99.8% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Genoa neighborhood has more Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 68.1% of this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.

Genoa is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 70.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 95.4% of the adult residents in the Genoa neighborhood do not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated adults than found in 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Genoa 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 35.4%, which is higher than 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, the real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 95.8% of all neighborhoods in America, with 31.7% 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: 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. What is interesting to note, is that the Genoa neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (42.5%) than are found in 95.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Genoa neighborhood in Houston are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 91.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 46.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 88.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Genoa neighborhood, 54.5% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer 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 33.1% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (9.5%), and 2.9% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Genoa neighborhood in Houston, TX, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (68.1%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (2.1%), and residents who report Irish roots (1.4%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (1.3%). In addition, 42.5% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Genoa neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 70.8% of households. Some people also speak English (28.9%).

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 Genoa neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (33.5% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (70.1%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (19.4%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
