Conifer is a somewhat small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 7,234 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Conifer is the 62nd largest community in Colorado.
Conifer home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Conifer real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some towns, Conifer isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Conifer are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Conifer is a town of professionals, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Conifer who work in management occupations (14.55%), office and administrative support (10.40%) and sales jobs (9.53%).
Also of interest is that Conifer has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Of important note, Conifer is also a town of artists. Conifer has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Conifer’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.61% 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.
The overall crime rate in Conifer is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Conifer is worth considering.
One downside of living in Conifer, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 40.46 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Even though Conifer is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly the bus for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
