Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh 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.

This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (29.7%).

If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

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 Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood has more Dutch and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.1% of this neighborhood's residents have Dutch ancestry and 2.5% have Swiss ancestry.

Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh 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 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood stands out by having 94.9% of commuters doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.8% of all American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 10 residents per square mile, Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh is less crowded than 97.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. One of the notable things about Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.

In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 36.7% of the residential real estate vacant, the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.5% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.

Notable & Unique: People

Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here than 96.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh 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, if you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no further than the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh 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 11.4% 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 Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood in Mount Vernon are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 76.9% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 1.9% 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 87.0% 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 Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood, 35.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 32.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (17.2%), and 14.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood in Mount Vernon, WA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (22.2%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (11.4%), and residents who report English roots (11.2%), and some of the residents are also of Norwegian ancestry (10.6%), along with some Dutch ancestry residents (9.1%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood is English, spoken by 93.2% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (2.6%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Big Lake / Lake Cavanaugh neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.9% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (94.9%) 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.
