Most Expensive Estero Neighborhoods
Estero is a medium-sized coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 25,671 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Estero is the 117th largest community in Florida. Estero has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Estero, where the median household income is $66,439.
Estero home prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, but Estero real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Estero is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 90.64% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Estero is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Estero who work in sales jobs (17.04%), management occupations (12.62%) and office and administrative support (11.11%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.19% 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.
Another notable thing is that Estero 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.
Estero is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
Estero is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
The citizens of Estero are among the most well-educated in the nation: 42.16% of adults in Estero have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Estero in 2010 was $45,697, which is wealthy relative to Florida and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $182,788 for a family of four. However, Estero contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
The people who call Estero home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Estero residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Estero include German, Irish, English, Italian, Polish and French.
