Pine is a very small town located in the state of Arizona. With a population of 1,952 people and just one neighborhood, Pine is the 114th largest community in Arizona.
Real Estate Prices
Pine real estate is some of the most expensive in Arizona, although Pine house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.
Occupations and Workforce
Pine is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 90.79% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Pine is a town of sales and office workers, managers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Pine who work in office and administrative support (25.20%), management occupations (20.33%) and sales jobs (16.26%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.82% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Pine is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Pine has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Pine a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small town, Pine doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
