Most Expensive Truckee Neighborhoods
Truckee is a medium-sized town located in the state of California. With a population of 16,297 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Truckee is the 339th largest community in California.
Housing costs in Truckee 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.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Truckee is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Truckee is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Truckee who work in office and administrative support (12.16%), management occupations (11.93%) and food service (11.76%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.81% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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.
Another notable thing is that Truckee is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Truckee is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Truckee’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
The education level of Truckee ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Truckee, 42.24% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.
The per capita income in Truckee in 2010 was $37,117, which is upper middle income relative to California, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $148,468 for a family of four. However, Truckee contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
The people who call Truckee home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Truckee residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Truckee also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 16.87% of the town’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Truckee include German, English, Irish, Italian, French and Swedish.
