Overview

Questa is a very small village located in the state of New Mexico. With a population of 1,742 people and just one neighborhood, Questa is the 83rd largest community in New Mexico.

Questa real estate is some of the most expensive in New Mexico, although Questa house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages, Questa isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Questa are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Questa is a village of service providers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Questa who work in law enforcement and fire fighting (11.43%), sales jobs (9.46%), and healthcare suport services (9.34%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 16.32% 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.

The village 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, Questa has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Questa a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Being a small village, Questa does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
