Shorts Corner is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in San Antonio, Texas.

Shorts Corner 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 single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Shorts Corner neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Shorts Corner has a 11.8% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 62.5% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

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.

NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 84.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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.
