Richmond Real Estate Information
Richmond is bordered by several neighbourhoods, including Killarney, Scarboro, Rutland Park, and Bankview. Homebuyers will notice that Richmond is also referred to as "Richmond/Knob Hill" since Richmond is on the West side of the Crowchild Trail and Knob Hill is to the East. The average price of a home in this neighbourhood is $795,633.
Richmond is one of Calgary's oldest communities, dating back to 1907 when it was first annexed by the city of Calgary. However, development of the area began decades later. Based on the 2016 Census of Canada, construction of Richmond's dwellings began from the 1960s onwards, with a consistent amount of development up to 2016.
This ends up lending the houses in Richmond a variety of construction dates and styles of architecture. Whether you're starting a family or want to enjoy your retired years, Richmond offers row houses, single family detached bungalows, as well as semi-detached homes.
Over time, many of the early modern homes fell into disrepair, so they have been torn down and replaced with luxurious houses. Some houses still embrace the 50s designs and have contemporary upgrades or they have been completely remodelled in newer styles for today's homebuyer.
New Richmond residents can easily get to know their neighbours because most people speak English and French. Some also know Spanish, Tagalog, Cantonese, Persian, or German. As you explore the properties in this Southwest Calgary community, you will find it's family-friendly with schools, greenspaces, and an overall welcoming people.
Homebuyers have busy schedules, so our real estate professionals can help you find Richmond properties in your price range and with the features you need, whether that's a four-bedroom detached home or a two-bedroom row house.
