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
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd neighborhood has more
Scottish and Scots-Irish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 8.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 4.3% have Scots-Irish ancestry.
Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
8.9% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of Virginia. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd 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, 84.8% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Also of note, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 95.4% of neighborhoods in America. This neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 1.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Lucks Ln / Courthouse Rd neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
