Eastsound Profile


Overview

Eastsound is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 5,675 people and just one neighborhood, Eastsound is the 126th largest community in Washington.

Eastsound home prices are not only among the most expensive in Washington, but Eastsound real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Eastsound is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Eastsound is a town of service providers, managers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Eastsound who work in management occupations (16.51%), office and administrative support (10.62%), and maintenance occupations (8.35%).

Of important note, Eastsound is also a town of artists. Eastsound has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Eastsound’s character.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 12.16% 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 Eastsound is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’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, Eastsound’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Eastsound is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Eastsound a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Eastsound has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Eastsound’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

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

Eastsound 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.

One of the benefits of Eastsound is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.74 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Eastsound Demographics

The citizens of Eastsound are among the most well-educated in the nation: 48.70% of adults in Eastsound have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Eastsound in 2010 was $38,134, which is wealthy relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $152,536 for a family of four. However, Eastsound contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Eastsound home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Eastsound residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Eastsound include English, German, Irish, Scottish, and Swedish.

The most common language spoken in Eastsound is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and French.
