Richmond Homes for Sale

About Richmond

Just a short 20-minute drive from downtown Vancouver, Richmond is the ideal spot for commuters. This beautiful island provides residents with an air of exclusivity and a range of properties to suit most budgets. Property prices increased over the last few years thanks to the development of the waterfront.

What attracts visitors is the pristine quality of the island, the high standard of living, and the various entertainment and dining options. Richmond is so unique that it won the highly-sought honour of hosting the Winter Olympics in 2010. Transport to and from the island is simple for international visitors thanks to its hosting of Vancouver's International Airport.

Richmond offers a fascinating blend of modern development and the safeguarding of the environment. With more than 100 parks in the city and several national parks nearby, there's no reason not to enjoy the summer sun as much as possible. When you're ready to head indoors, there are many places to dance the night away.
