Frisco is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 2,914 people and just one neighborhood, Frisco is the 105th largest community in Colorado.
Real Estate Prices
Frisco home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Frisco 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, Frisco is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Frisco is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Frisco who work in management occupations (16.94%), sales jobs (14.11%) and office and administrative support (12.01%).
Of important note, Frisco is also a town of artists. Frisco has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Frisco’s character.
Also of interest is that Frisco 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: 11.43% 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 Frisco is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Frisco’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much 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 17.52 minutes getting to work every day.
