Most Expensive Kenmore Neighborhoods
Kenmore is a medium-sized city located in the state of Washington. With a population of 21,839 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Kenmore is the 47th largest community in Washington.
Kenmore home prices are not only among the most expensive in Washington, but Kenmore real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Kenmore is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.18% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Kenmore is a city of professionals, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Kenmore who work in management occupations (13.69%), office and administrative support (11.68%) and sales jobs (10.17%).

Of important note, Kenmore is also a city of artists. Kenmore has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Kenmore’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.74% 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.
Because of many things, Kenmore is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Kenmore 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 city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Kenmore has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Kenmore’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
One downside of living in Kenmore is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Kenmore, the average commute to work is 33.50 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the city, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Kenmore is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the bus helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Kenmore area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
The citizens of Kenmore are among the most well-educated in the nation: 49.15% of adults in Kenmore have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
