Buena Park Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

Buena Park is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of California. With a population of 82,882 people and 14 constituent neighborhoods, Buena Park is the 93rd largest community in California.

Housing costs in Buena Park are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don’t compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.

Unlike some cities, Buena Park isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Buena Park are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Buena Park is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Buena Park who work in office and administrative support (16.01%), sales jobs (13.69%) and management occupations (8.85%).

Also of interest is that Buena Park has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Another interesting thing about Buena Park, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.

In Buena Park, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.55 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit.

Like elsewhere in America, most people in Buena Park use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Buena Park‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the bus. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
