Real Estate Prices

Occupations and Workforce
Redington Beach is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 94.53% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Redington Beach is a town of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Redington Beach who work in sales jobs (23.23%), management occupations (20.69%) and office and administrative support (12.68%).
Also of interest is that Redington Beach has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.17% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Redington Beach 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.
Redington Beach 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.
One downside of living in Redington Beach, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.39 minutes every day commuting to work.
