Living in Homosassa

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Homosassa has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.34% 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 Homosassa is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Homosassa has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Homosassa a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Homosassa 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

The overall education level of Homosassa citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 29.21% of adults in Homosassa have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Homosassa in 2022 was $45,481, which is upper middle income relative to Florida, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $181,924 for a family of four. However, Homosassa contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
