Avalon Profile


Overview

Avalon is a very small coastal borough (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 1,283 people and just one neighborhood, Avalon is the 461st largest community in New Jersey.

Avalon home prices are not only among the most expensive in New Jersey, but Avalon real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Avalon is a decidedly white-collar borough, with fully 94.38% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Avalon is a borough of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Avalon who work in management occupations (24.06%), sales jobs (15.99%), and teaching (13.11%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.33% 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.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Avalon is a major vacation destination. Much of the borough’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Avalon’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet borough 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!) Avalon 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. Avalon has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Avalon than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Avalon may be for you.

One of the nice things about Avalon is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
