About Seattle, WA (1st Ave / Stewart St)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

1st Ave / Stewart St median real estate price is $967,413, which is more expensive than 92.8% of the neighborhoods in Washington and 95.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in 1st Ave / Stewart St is currently $2,624, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 78.4% of the neighborhoods in Washington.

1st Ave / Stewart St is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Seattle, Washington.

1st Ave / Stewart St real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to large (four, five or more bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built before 1940.

1st Ave / Stewart St has a 13.3% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 69.3% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are 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: Real Estate

The real estate in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 99.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.9% of American neighborhoods.

In addition, the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 98.3% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

Furthermore, the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 34,068 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.6% of the nation's neighborhoods. Being a walkable neighborhood can help increase property values for the simple reason that people enjoy it and value it. To put it plainly, despite our love affair with the automobile, American's enjoy taking to the streets, sidewalks, paths, and courtyards of a place to get a coffee, relax, and take in the sights and sounds. And, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive and first quantitative walkable score index, the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in America.

Also of note, 84.8% of the real estate in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Notable & Unique: People

The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America, has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 65.8%. This is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in 1st Ave / Stewart St choose to walk to work each day (39.7%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood could be a good choice.

Also, a unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood, analysis shows that 14.4% 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 97.5% 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.

Finally, if your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no further than this unique neighborhood. With 3.6% of residents in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than 95.8% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood buck this trend. 35.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Executives, managers and professionals make up 65.9% of the workforce in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood which, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such high-level people than is found in 95.7% of the neighborhoods in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood has more Austrian and Ukrainian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 1.7% have Ukrainian ancestry.

1st Ave / Stewart St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

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 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood. In the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 97.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.


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 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood in Seattle are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 55.2% of the neighborhoods in America. With 39.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 85.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood, 65.9% 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 23.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (6.5%), and 3.5% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood is English, spoken by 79.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Chinese, Spanish and African languages.

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 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood in Seattle, WA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (16.4%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (15.4%), and residents who report English roots (10.3%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (7.8%), along with some French ancestry residents (5.5%), among others. In addition, 21.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 1st Ave / Stewart St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (39.7%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (31.8%) and 15.5% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
