Owings is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 2,190 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Owings is the 185th largest community in Maryland.
Owings home prices are not only among the most expensive in Maryland, but Owings real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Owings is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Owings is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Owings who work in management occupations (12.07%), sales jobs (11.18%) and office and administrative support (10.81%).
Of important note, Owings is also a town of artists. Owings has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Owings’s character.
Also of interest is that Owings has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.39% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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.
Owings 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, Owings’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Owings 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.
