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

high-level people than is found in 98.5% of the neighborhoods
in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Old Ivy Rd / Crestwood Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, the real estate in the Old Ivy Rd / Crestwood Dr neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 86.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.1% of American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, the Old Ivy Rd / Crestwood Dr 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 88.2% 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.
Also of note, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Old Ivy Rd / Crestwood Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 90.6%, which is higher than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Old Ivy Rd / Crestwood Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 85.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
