About Lynden, WA (Greenwood)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Greenwood median real estate price is $398,956, which is more expensive than 66.9% of the neighborhoods in Washington and 80.6% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Greenwood is currently $1,224, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 69.8% of Washington neighborhoods.

Greenwood is a rural neighborhood (based on population density) located in Lynden, Washington.

Greenwood real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Greenwood neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Home and apartment vacancy rates are 8.5% in Greenwood. NeighborhoodScout analysis shows that this rate is lower than 53.3% of the neighborhoods in the nation, approximately near the middle range for vacancies.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Greenwood neighborhood has more Dutch and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 19.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry and 1.9% have Finnish ancestry.

Greenwood is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 95.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Greenwood neighborhood, analysis shows that 12.9% 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 97.1% 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: Car Ownership

Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in the Greenwood neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 28.0% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.4% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: People

If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no further than the Greenwood 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 among the top 10.4% of family-friendly neighborhoods 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.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Greenwood neighborhood in Lynden are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 75.8% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 3.8% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 80.9% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Greenwood neighborhood, 32.8% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 32.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (20.4%), and 13.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Greenwood neighborhood in Lynden, WA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Dutch (19.7%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (18.4%), and residents who report Irish roots (12.7%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (10.6%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (7.9%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Greenwood neighborhood is English, spoken by 90.8% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (5.3%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Greenwood neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (45.9% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (92.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
