Santa Rosa Beach Homes for Sale

Santa Rosa Beach is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 14,938 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Santa Rosa Beach is the 195th largest community in Florida. Santa Rosa Beach has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Santa Rosa Beach, where the median household income is $83,451.00.

Santa Rosa Beach home prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, but Santa Rosa Beach real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Santa Rosa Beach is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.41% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Santa Rosa Beach is a town of managers, sales and office workers, and professionals.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.55% 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.

Another notable thing is that Santa Rosa Beach is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Santa Rosa Beach is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Santa Rosa Beach 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.

With regard to real estate, Santa Rosa Beach has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Santa Rosa Beach’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!) Santa Rosa Beach 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. Santa Rosa Beach has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Santa Rosa Beach than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Santa Rosa Beach may be for you.

Santa Rosa Beach 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.

Santa Rosa Beach is one of the most well-educated cities in the nation. 43.23% of adults in Santa Rosa Beach have at least a bachelor’s degree. Compare that to the average community in America, which has just 21.84% with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
