Richmond offers a variety of housing options from the historic areas of Point Richmond on the shore of San Francisco Bay to the Richmond Hills, with views of the Oakland skyline to the south and Mount Tamalpais to the west. Easy access to freeways and the BART system permits convenient commuting to the Bay Area’s major employment centers.
Prices of housing from condominiums to mansions vary from a few in the $200,000 range to some well over $1,000,000. The average residential property sale price in 2004 was $394,062. As of July 2005, that figure had increased to $465,846. A growing population and a scarcity of available housing stock continue to cause prices to increase and exacerbate the affordability challenge even further.
