A lot of cars in the street
Why do some neighborhoods have so many cars parked in the street? I'm talking about suburban residential neighborhoods where everyone has a garage and driveway, not the city where people have no choice but to park in the street. I think it looks so cluttered, and it drives me nuts. I find it a huge turn-off when I'm looking at houses.
I'm just curious about what drives this. Maybe it's an area with more people living in the houses than the house is designed for? Or a neighborhood where people have more than the average amount of possessions, so their garage is filled with stuff instead of cars? It seems to be correlated with neighborhoods that have other factors I dislike, like poorly maintained yards and houses. But not always. I just don't get it.
