Like most Floridians we want to live in a place where we can raise a family in a safe and positive environment. A home that is reasonably priced, centrally located and close to the water. Yulee is that hidden gem. As an up and coming market, Yulee is the 189th largest community in Florida. Most of the homes in Yulee are new construction as most home buyers are choosing to move to Yulee due to its inexpensive housing and its proximity to both Jacksonville and Amelia Island.
Yulee’s population is relatively small at 12,000+ residents. However due to Jacksonville and Amelia Island’s booming housing markets and significantly more expensive price per square foot real estate, many individuals are looking for more economical options with the same perks. The vast majority of homes in Yulee are new construction, on average some of the newest homes in the nation. The average price per square foot is running around $108.00. Over the last few years the median household income has increased to $55,828.00 due to an influx of new middle-class residents calling Yulee home.
Yulee’s residents are a mix of both white-collar and blue-collar occupants. The percentage of adults who live in Yulee with a college degree is just below the national average at 21.8%, with almost 15% having a bachelor’s or master’s degree. Yulee is a town of office, sales, professionals and service providers. Almost 40% of Yulee’s residents work as office/administrative professionals, sales and food service industries.
The only downside to living in Yulee is the travel. On average, residents of Yulee who work in Jacksonville or Fernandina have to travel almost 32 minutes for their daily commute. With that said the residents of Yulee (86.5%) drive a car daily, while a small percentage (13.5%) choose alternative methods of transportation.
Yulee is a quiet town. The majority of its residents are older adults. Though the demographics are shifting as families with younger children are starting to move in and call Yulee home.
