Wilkeson median real estate price is $315,195, which is more expensive than 49.6% of the neighborhoods in Washington and 72.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Wilkeson is currently $1,323, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Rents here are currently lower in price than 61.0% of Washington neighborhoods.

Wilkeson is a remote neighborhood (based on population density) located in Orting, Washington.

Wilkeson real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Wilkeson 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.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Wilkeson. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 33.0%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (26.6%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Wilkeson neighborhood has more Finnish and Scottish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.4% of this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 7.3% have Scottish ancestry.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Unpopulated, and rural, the Wilkeson neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Wilkeson neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 33.0%, which is higher than 95.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no further than the Wilkeson 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 14.5% 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

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Wilkeson neighborhood in Orting are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 81.8% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 11.6% 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 60.6% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

In the Wilkeson neighborhood, 32.6% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 23.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (21.5%), and 19.8% 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 Wilkeson neighborhood in Orting, WA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (24.2%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (16.1%), and residents who report Norwegian roots (10.5%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (7.8%), along with some Scottish ancestry residents (7.3%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Wilkeson neighborhood is English, spoken by 97.5% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (2.3%).

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 Wilkeson neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (39.3% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

Here most residents (79.0%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (17.1%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
