Real Estate Prices
Kilauea home prices are not only among the most expensive in Hawaii, but Kilauea real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Occupations and Workforce
Kilauea is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.00% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Kilauea is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Kilauea who work in maintenance occupations (20.60%), sales jobs (14.23%) and management occupations (13.49%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.43% 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
One of the nice things about Kilauea 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.
