Most Expensive Yarmouth Neighborhoods
Yarmouth is a medium-sized coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 23,592 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Yarmouth is the 79th largest community in Massachusetts.
Housing costs in Yarmouth 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.
Yarmouth is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Yarmouth is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Yarmouth who work in sales jobs (12.27%), office and administrative support (11.72%) and management occupations (10.02%).
Another notable thing is that Yarmouth 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!) Yarmouth 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. Yarmouth has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Yarmouth than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Yarmouth may be for you.
Yarmouth 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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
The overall education level of Yarmouth citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 30.88% of adults in Yarmouth have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
The per capita income in Yarmouth in 2010 was $33,872, which is lower middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $135,488 for a family of four. However, Yarmouth contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
