About Lubbock, TX (Ave Q / 4th St)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Ave Q / 4th St real estate is primarily composed of apartments and renters, so no median house value data are available. The average rental price in Ave Q / 4th St is currently $1,537, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 86.9% of the neighborhoods in Texas.

Ave Q / 4th St is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Lubbock, Texas.

Ave Q / 4th St real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Ave Q / 4th St has a 11.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 60.3% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character.

This particular neighborhood in Lubbock, the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents. In the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

If you are attracted to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer. But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood is a fantastic option for bicycle commuters, as 8.3% of commuters here do ride their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount than we found in 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result, most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis shows that the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 25.9% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.4% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Significantly, 1.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Urdu, which is the national language of Pakistan, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 96.6% of the neighborhoods in America.


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 Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood in Lubbock are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 89.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood, 58.3% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 21.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (14.8%), and 5.2% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood in Lubbock, TX, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (20.2%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (11.0%), and residents who report English roots (7.4%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (6.6%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (4.0%), among others.

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 Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood is English, spoken by 88.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and South Asian languages.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Ave Q / 4th St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (50.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (79.7%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also bicycle to get to work (8.3%) and 7.1% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
