Terms you might hear to describe a neighborhood?

I came across a list today of how real estate agents across the country describe neighborhoods.

Urban Bootstrappers are lower scale single parents living in the city, supporting themselves and their children on a low income and rent their homes.

New Suburbanites are

  • Mobile suburban singles

  • A high proportion of this pre-middle-age to middle-age singles have moved to the suburbs in the past 8 years

  • Some have a college education and work in professional or management careers

Wise Old Urbanites:

  • Older home-owning city dwellers in older buildings

  • Middle- to senior-age urban singles that are established in their work and living environment Most own their own apartment or condo and tend to live in older buildings

One-income Metros:

  • Single-income families living in the city

  • Families with adults approaching middle age with one partner working and the other a stay-at-home parent

  • Mixed educational status with some having a high school education and some college

Upwardly Mobile:

  • Suburban couples living in mobile homes

  • A higher than average percentage of these married couples with no children live in mobile homes or non-conventional homes (boats, RVs, etc.)

  • Education level varies from high school to college.
