Belvedere Profile


Overview

Belvedere is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 2,126 people and just one neighborhood, Belvedere is the 625th largest community in California.

Belvedere home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but Belvedere real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Belvedere is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 94.09% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Belvedere is a city of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Belvedere who work in management occupations (29.44%), business and financial occupations (14.31%), and sales jobs (14.03%).

Also of interest is that Belvedere 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: 11.34% 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

In addition, Belvedere is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Belvedere 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, Belvedere really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Belvedere 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.

Belvedere is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Belvedere is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Belvedere, the average commute to work is 37.80 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the city, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

Despite being a small city, Belvedere has a lot of people using a ferryboat to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on a ferryboat are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.

Belvedere Demographics

If knowledge is power, Belvedere is a pretty powerful place. 84.96% of the adults in Belvedere have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.

The per capita income in Belvedere in 2010 was $166,281, which is wealthy relative to California and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $665,124 for a family of four.

Belvedere is a somewhat ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Belvedere home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Belvedere residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Belvedere include English, German, Irish, European, and Northern European.

The most common language spoken in Belvedere is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Polish.
