Hayes Town Center is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Hayes, Virginia. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Real estate in the Town Center of Hayes, VA is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Town Center neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Hayes Town Center has a 13.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 69.3% of American neighborhoods).

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

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.
