The reasons to look at Richmond homes are nearly endless. Here are just a few thoughts about Richmond homes, living in this great city and how I can help you find the home of your dreams.
The city of Richmond offers all the amenities you could ever want. Great shopping is available at locales such as Aberdeen Centre, Lansdowne Centre or Richmond Centre. Incredible dining is just steps away at the Cactus Club, Mad Greek Restaurant or Seto Japanese Restaurant.

For arts and culture, check out the Richmond Art Gallery and Richmond Public Library. There are over 50 elementary and secondary schools in the city for great education.
Richmond Homes or Richmond Condos?
There are a wide variety of neighborhoods that offer fantastic single family homes in Richmond with great schools and amenities nearby. If you prefer townhouse or condo living, there are lots of affordable options in Richmond that offer all of the attractions of the big city, with a much lower price tag than in Vancouver. There are more new condo developments going up every year in this town, and new residents should take advantage of the availability of great housing.

Presale vs. Resale
One of the biggest questions to ask is whether you want a presale or resale home. Presale homes offer you the opportunity to have a brand new home, sometimes tailored to your desires. You get warranty insurance and can benefit from property appreciation. On the down side, you have to wait for the project to be finished before moving in, and there’s no guarantee of mortgage approval until the project nears completion.
Resale, on the other hand, allows you to get mortgage approval and move in right away. You can see the home as it sits without having to worry about whether it’ll meet your needs. On the down side, you’ll need to have more money up front, and you may have to put some cash into renovations.
