Fort Myers Beach home prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, but Fort Myers Beach real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Fort Myers Beach is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Fort Myers Beach is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Fort Myers Beach who work in sales jobs (16.18%), office and administrative support (14.79%) and management occupations (11.39%).
Of important note, Fort Myers Beach is also a town of artists. Fort Myers Beach has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Fort Myers Beach’s character.
A relatively large number of people in Fort Myers Beach telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.89% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Another notable thing is that Fort Myers Beach is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents.

During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
