Most Expensive Dennis Neighborhoods
Dennis is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 14,037 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Dennis is the 134th largest community in Massachusetts.
Housing costs in Dennis are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Massachusetts.
Unlike some towns, Dennis isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Dennis are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dennis is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Dennis who work in office and administrative support (13.50%), sales jobs (11.09%) and management occupations (9.40%).
Another notable thing is that Dennis is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Dennis has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Dennis has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Dennis than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Dennis may be for you.
Dennis 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
The citizens of Dennis are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 37.46% of adults in Dennis have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Dennis in 2010 was $35,132, which is middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $140,528 for a family of four. However, Dennis contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
