Real Estate Prices
Dillon home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Dillon real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Dillon is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dillon is a town of managers, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Dillon who work in management occupations (20.70%), food service (14.56%) and sales jobs (14.04%).
Of important note, Dillon is also a town of artists. Dillon has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Dillon’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 16.01% 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
Another notable thing is that Dillon 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.
Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 14.65 minutes getting to work every day.
