Where to Buy a Townhouse in Richmond in 2019 – Full Ranking

Housing Market Report   Greater Vancouver   Townhouse 2019   Full Ranking

Lower Mainland buyers have a love-hate relationship with Richmond, B.C.

The city offers great access to Vancouver’s international airport, the SkyTrain and a direct route to downtown Vancouver. But it’s one of the hottest locations for mega-mansion builds and land-parcel sales. Plus, over half of the population in Richmond is a first-generation immigrant. (Quite often people from mainland China come and set-up a home base in this city, due, in part, to the previously established Chinese immigrants, but also because the stores and surrounding amenities now cater to this large demographic.)

But not everyone who wants to buy in this city can afford (or wants to buy) a single-family home. That’s when a townhouse offers a good option. Rather than live in a tower of condos, a townhouse offers a more affordable option into this market along with many of the benefits of a house (yard space, more living space, a door that exits to the street, etc.).
