Most Expensive Odessa Neighborhoods
Odessa is a somewhat small town located in the state of Florida. With a population of 7,582 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Odessa is the 230th largest community in Florida. Much of the housing stock in Odessa was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Odessa economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Odessa, where the median household income is $61,284.
Odessa home prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, but Odessa real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Odessa is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.29% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Odessa is a town of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Odessa who work in sales jobs (14.18%), management occupations (13.74%) and office and administrative support (10.50%).
Also of interest is that Odessa has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
A relatively large number of people in Odessa telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 11.37% 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. 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.
Because of many things, Odessa is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Odessa a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Odessa has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Odessa’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
One downside of living in Odessa, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.47 minutes every day commuting to work.
Being a small town, Odessa does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
The citizens of Odessa are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 34.17% of adults in Odessa have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Odessa in 2010 was $28,145, which is upper middle income relative to Florida and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $112,580 for a family of four. However, Odessa contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
