If you live in the Valley, you likely know someone who goes to work everyday in the friendly confines of their own home.

According to Forbes, Scottsdale, Ariz., has one of the highest percentages in the nation of people with home offices.

Scottdale is tied with Boca Raton, Fla, for the 13th-highest rate in the country for residents who work from home -- both coming in at 9.8 percent of the population.

So which cities boast the highest percentages of people who have no commutes to work?

Jacksonville, N.C., has 13.8 percent of its population that works from home, while Johns Creek, Ga., and Boulder, Colo., follow up at 13.1 and 11.6 percent, respectively.

California has two cities that cracked the top five in Forbes' list: Encinitas and Berkeley, which have 10.7 and 10.6 percent, respectively, of residents work from home.
