Most Expensive Brentwood Neighborhoods
Brentwood is a medium-sized city located in the state of Tennessee. With a population of 40,982 people and ten constituent neighborhoods, Brentwood is the 17th largest community in Tennessee.
Brentwood home prices are not only among the most expensive in Tennessee, but Brentwood real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Brentwood is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 94.10% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Brentwood is a city of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Brentwood who work in management occupations (22.53%), sales jobs (13.82%) and healthcare (9.76%).
Of important note, Brentwood is also a city of artists. Brentwood has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Brentwood’s character.
Also of interest is that Brentwood has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.80% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.
In addition, Brentwood is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
Because of many things, Brentwood is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Brentwood really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Brentwood perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
If knowledge is power, Brentwood is a pretty powerful place. 67.91% of the adults in Brentwood have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
The per capita income in Brentwood in 2010 was $58,745, which is wealthy relative to Tennessee and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $234,980 for a family of four.
