Most Expensive Brentwood Neighborhoods
Brentwood is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of California. With a population of 57,019 people and seven constituent neighborhoods, Brentwood is the 167th largest community in California. There's nothing like the smell of a brand new house, and in Brentwood, you'll find that a large proportion of houses were recently built. New growth in residential real estate is an indication that people are choosing to move to Brentwood, and putting down their money on brand new construction. Brentwood’s real estate is, on average, some of the newest in the nation. Brentwood does seem to be experiencing an influx of affluent people, because the median household income is $88,697.

Brentwood is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Brentwood is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Brentwood who work in office and administrative support (15.75%), sales jobs (12.40%) and management occupations (10.90%).
Also of interest is that Brentwood 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: 8.50% 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, Brentwood 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, Brentwood really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Brentwood 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.

The per capita income in Brentwood in 2010 was $33,357, which is upper middle income relative to California, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $133,428 for a family of four. However, Brentwood contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
