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 Badger neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 98.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Badger neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
In addition, wealth makes most things in life easier, and a few things harder.
If you are wealthy and enjoy keeping up with the Jones', this neighborhood
will interest you. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the Badger neighborhood is wealthier than 95.9%
of the neighborhoods in the United States. Residents here are truly in
a unique situation even when compared to other Americans, based on the
sheer amount of wealth concentrated here. Even in times of economic
downturn, residents of this neighborhood, as a group, suffered less
and recovered more quickly. This is indeed a stand-out characteristic
of this neighborhood.
Also, the Badger 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
5.2% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of Washington. 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 highly educated executives, urban sophisticates and active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Badger neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Badger neighborhood. A whopping 54.6% 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 96.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
