Surfside Profile


Overview

Surfside is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 5,651 people and just one neighborhood, Surfside is the 261st largest community in Florida.

Surfside home prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, but Surfside real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Surfside is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 92.18% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Surfside is a town of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Surfside who work in management occupations (22.38%), sales jobs (12.30%), and art, media, and design (10.16%).

Of important note, Surfside is also a town of artists. Surfside has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Surfside’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Surfside telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 22.40% 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.

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Surfside is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Surfside’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

One of the nice things about Surfside is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

In Surfside, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.66 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

The per capita income in Surfside in 2018 was $50,114, which is wealthy relative to Florida and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $200,456 for a family of four. However, Surfside contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
