Most Expensive Weymouth Neighborhoods
Weymouth is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 55,643 people and ten constituent neighborhoods, Weymouth is the 23rd largest community in Massachusetts.
Housing costs in Weymouth 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 cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Weymouth is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Weymouth is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Weymouth who work in office and administrative support (16.03%), sales jobs (11.38%) and management occupations (10.86%).
Also of interest is that Weymouth has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Weymouth 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.
One downside of living in Weymouth is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Weymouth, the average commute to work is 31.55 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the city, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
For the size of the city, public transportation in Weymouth is quite heavily used. Mostly, people who use it for their daily commute are taking the subway. For Weymouth, the benefits are reduced air pollution and congestion on the highways.
The education level of Weymouth citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 32.02% of adults in Weymouth have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Weymouth in 2010 was $35,162, which is middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $140,648 for a family of four. However, Weymouth contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
