"Bedroom Community" I thought all communities had bedrooms.

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

Typically most all communities do have bedrooms, some are just better known for it than others.

By definition a "bedroom community" is one where most of the residents work in nearby towns or cities and commute back and forth daily.

daily commuters, these guys should move to knoxville tn

 Most bedroom communities don't offer much in the way of employment except for hourly jobs such as in supermarkets, dry cleaners, restaurants, etc..

In my town we have a few 'bedroom' communities; probably one of the best known is the Town of Farragut.

Farragut was named after the naval hero, Admiral David Farragut of "Damn the torpedos! Full speed ahead!" fame. He was born in Knoxville and served his country well during the Civil War and others.

You can read all about Farragut on my other blog, www.KnoxvilleTennesseeRealEstateBlog.com

 What are some bedroom communities in your area???

Well, we really don't have any "bedroom" communities in our neck of the woods. We're still considered fairly "rural" by the East Siders (people living over in the Seattle area). When I lived in Kansas, we lived in a bedroom community. Actually a university town, Lawrence, about 30 minutes west of Kansas City.
