Most Expensive Rexburg Neighborhoods
Rexburg is a medium-sized city located in the state of Idaho. With a population of 27,094 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Rexburg is the 11th largest community in Idaho.
Rexburg is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.47% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Rexburg is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Rexburg who work in office and administrative support (18.36%), teaching (13.91%) and sales jobs (12.64%).
Of important note, Rexburg is also a city of artists. Rexburg has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Rexburg’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.48% 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.
Rexburg is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Rexburg have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Rexburg’s economy is one such example of this.
Rexburg, while not large, also appears to be attractive to some younger, educated professionals, who help shape the character of the city.
