Richmond Detached

Richmond detached homes: single family homes

Richmond Detached House

The shortage of large land parcel for single family development has resulted in many old detached or single family homes in established Richmond neighborhoods being torn down, and replaced by new homes that are much larger.

In prime West Richmond neighborhoods, old detached homes with large lots had gained in values from $300,000 in early 2000 to over $1,000,000. These old Richmond detached homes with lot size over 8,000 are now selling at a premium, and many such properties were reported to be sold at $1,200,000 to $1,500,000.
