Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.38% of people work from home.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Malabar 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.
