Lunt median real estate price is $352,385, which is more expensive than 70.8% of the neighborhoods in Virginia and 76.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Lunt is currently $2,434, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 92.3% of the neighborhoods in Virginia.

Lunt is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Alexandria, Virginia.

Lunt 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 townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Lunt neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Lunt. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 17.4%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 80.4% 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

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Alexandria, the Lunt neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: People

If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In fact, a mere 4.0% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the Lunt neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time. The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe. As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this, Lunt also has one of the lowest ratings of child poverty in the nation.

In addition, the first thing that you'll notice if you moved to this neighborhood is that an astounding 3.8% of the households are same sex couples. According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis, this is a higher proportion of same sex households than in 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America. This is one indicator that this neighborhood is likely a gay-friendly neighborhood. So if you are looking for such a neighborhood, the Lunt neighborhood should definitely be on your list of places to consider.

Also, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters, law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in the Lunt neighborhood, where 35.4% have earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree, and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

The Lunt neighborhood has a greater proportion of government workers living in it than 99.6% 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.

Furthermore, executives, managers and professionals make up 74.0% of the workforce in the Lunt neighborhood which, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such high-level people than is found in 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

In addition, with 2.7% of employed workers living in the Lunt neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military than 97.9% of American neighborhoods. This is a major shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Lunt is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

If you like to ride the train to work, this neighborhood may be for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that 30.8% of the Lunt neighborhood's commuters ride the train to and from work each day, which is more than we found in 97.5% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

If you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Lunt neighborhood. A whopping 54.0% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 96.5% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.

In addition, many people dream of living along a street lined with row houses or other attached homes. Such places do often have an abundance of charm. If you are one of these people, the Lunt neighborhood could be your paradise. With 24.2% of the homes and real estate here classified as rowhouses or other attached homes, this neighborhood brims with opportunity to find the right place for you. Only 4.7% of U.S. neighborhoods have more row houses than this neighborhood, making it one of the most interesting things about this special neighborhood.

Furthermore, the Lunt 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 83.2% 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.


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 Lunt neighborhood in Alexandria are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 0.0% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 100.0% of America'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 Lunt neighborhood, 74.0% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions, with 27.3% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (13.6%), and 9.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support 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 Lunt neighborhood in Alexandria, VA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (14.5%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (13.0%), and residents who report Asian roots (12.7%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (11.8%), along with some Scots-Irish ancestry residents (5.9%), among others. In addition, 13.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Lunt neighborhood is English, spoken by 80.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, Japanese, Chinese and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

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 Lunt neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (32.3% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (54.9%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also take the train to get to work (30.8%) and 6.4% of residents also ride the bus 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.
