Philadelphia Countertop Quote
Philadelphia Custom Countertop Stone Fabricators & Installers
Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love and home to the beloved Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Flyers, has a population of 1,560,297 as of 2014, a growth of about 34,000 people (a 2.2% increase) since 2010, according to the US Census Bureau.
The Philadelphia metro area, known as Delaware Valley, is home to 6.1 million residents and is the sixth-largest metro area in the country.
It is forecasted that 100,000 residents and 40,000 jobs will be added in 2035, so there should be an increase in new home construction and remodel projects that would require countertop installation projects.
The Census Bureau reports a median household income of $36,836 in 2013, but if you compare incomes in different neighborhoods, a wealth disparity is found. For example, the median household income in Society Hill is just over $93,700, while in North Philadelphia’s lowest median income area, it’s $14,185. As a result, you might find exotic countertops in the higher income neighborhoods and commercial-grade granites and quartz countertop products in lower income areas.
In 2014, the city’s annual unemployment rate was 7.8% but 8,800 jobs, many of which were in education and health services, were added to the city’s economy.
The cost of living is slightly higher than the national average, mainly because the price of housing is higher than the national average. The tax rate for residents of Philadelphia is 3.92%.
