Real Estate Prices
Housing costs in Bonsall are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bonsall is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bonsall is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bonsall who work in sales jobs (23.85%), office and administrative support (13.90%) and management occupations (9.70%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.35% 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
Because of many things, Bonsall 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, Bonsall really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Bonsall 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.
