Do You Think You Know Fremont? Think Again.
Whatever you may think you know about Fremont, chances are you don’t have the whole picture. Or maybe even half the picture. That’s the message in an eye-opening promotional video recently released by the City of Fremont’s Economic Development Department.
Many people think of Fremont as a sleepy bedroom community in southern Alameda County. And that may well have been true a decade or so ago.
But today, Fremont is one of the most dynamic — and desirable — cities not only in the Bay Area, but also in the entire state!
Educated, Affluent and Inventive
Fremont is presently the 4th largest city in the Bay Area and 15th largest in the state with a population of 214,000. More than 40% of Fremont’s residents are foreign born, making the city one of the most exciting, culturally diverse, urban areas in California.
Here are more key facts about Fremont that you may not know:
• 49% of residents have bachelor’s, post-graduate or professional degrees
• The average annual household income is $123,000
• The median home price in 2010 was more than $654,000
• The trade area population swells to nearly 400,000 people — making Fremont a great place to do business
