Cave Creek is a somewhat small town located in the state of Arizona. With a population of 5,253 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Cave Creek is the 74th largest community in Arizona.
Cave Creek home prices are not only among the most expensive in Arizona, but Cave Creek real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Cave Creek is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.48% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Cave Creek is a town of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cave Creek who work in management occupations (18.68%), healthcare (12.57%) and sales jobs (11.11%).
Also of interest is that Cave Creek has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.46% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Because of many things, Cave Creek is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Cave Creek really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Cave Creek perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Cave Creek is worth considering.
One downside of living in Cave Creek, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.71 minutes every day commuting to work.
