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 SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE neighborhood has more
Swiss and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry and 1.9% have Finnish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE
More residents of the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters,
or fishers. But the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 96.3% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE
neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
96.3% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood

across the state of Washington. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the SE 436th St / 228th Ave SE neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand.
