Wellfleet Profile


Overview

Wellfleet is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 2,749 people and just one neighborhood, Wellfleet is the 281st largest community in Massachusetts.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Wellfleet is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Wellfleet is a town of professionals, managers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wellfleet who work in management occupations (14.04%), art, media, and design (11.14%), and healthcare (7.60%).

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

A relatively large number of people in Wellfleet telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 20.72% 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 Wellfleet 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.

Wellfleet is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Wellfleet’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Wellfleet has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Wellfleet a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Wellfleet 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.
