As part of the Greater Vancouver Area, the city of Richmond is made up of a series of islands located at the mouth of the Fraser River. It’s the 4th largest city in British Columbia with a population of just under 220,000. More than half (60%) of its population are immigrants—the highest immigrant population in a city in Canada.

Prior to European settlements, the Coast Salish Native bands had temporary camps in Richmond. They used the spot as a place to fish and collect berries. As a result, the city is home to several museums and heritage sites. On the southwestern tip of the island is Steveston Village, which has a working harbour.

Richmond’s proximity to Metro Vancouver and the fact that it’s Sea Island is home to the Vancouver International Airport, makes the city a popular choice for families and for business people who must travel domestically and internationally.

Its temperate climate is another reason why people favour homes in Richmond, B.C. Since it’s not close to the mountains the city tends to receive about 30% less rain than Metro Vancouver. In the winter, it rarely snows. In the summer, temperatures are mild but war. The only climatic concern for Richmond residents is the thick fog that can roll in during the cooler months.

Richmond’s economy is varied. It includes service jobs, retail, tourism, light manufacturing, aviation-related industries, as well as jobs in agriculture and fishing. The city also preserves just under 5,000 hectares of farmland within the city boundaries, with just over 3,000 hectares actively farmed.

City planners are actively working to update and create additional retail outlets in the city. The city’s official plan includes the creation of nine village centres that are focused around transit hubs. As a result, planners are expecting the city’s population to grow by more than a third within the next few years.

Neighbourhoods

There are four broad residential communities in Richmond, as well as Sea Island, where the airport is located. Each community offers a wide variety of property types and lifestyle preferences.

Those looking for large new-builds with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and ample parking should head over to Boyd Park in the Broadmoor/Shellmont/Gilmore community. The average property price in this neighbourhood is just under $1 million but expect to pay twice as much if you want a detached home. In the northeast part of the city is the community of Brighouse, where properties sell for just under $525,000, on average. Both Shellmont and City Centre are great for commuters as they both have easy access to Highway 99.

For established family neighbourhoods start the search in South Steveston. Properties here sell for about $750,000—about 50% less than what homes sell for in North Steveston.

To get a better idea of your options, talk to your local Richmond Realtor. If you have time, spend a weekend checking out Richmond open houses.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Richmond’s downtown core. Good options include Delta, New Westminster and Tsawwassen. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Ladner or Newton. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Burnaby, Surrey and White Rock are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Want to know where the locals are hanging out? One place to check would be at Richmond’s Night Market. This massive outdoor market features more than 80 food stalls and over 200 vendors. It’s also got an amusement park and a zip line. There is an entry fee ($2.25 per person) but kids under 10 get in for free. In the summer, foodies will also want to walk along the Fraser River to the International Summer Market. Open from May to September, this market is a smorgasbord of food. Whether it’s sno-cones, hurricane potatoes, noodles or Belgian waffles, you want it, it’s here. It’s $2 to get in and free for seniors and those under 48 inches.

Another option is to spend time at Minoru Park. This is where you’ll find the Richmond Cultural Centre, the Richmond Art Gallery and the Richmond Museum. All three attractions are free to the public and feature a variety of standing and visiting exhibitions. If you’re up for it, Richmond also has the second largest Buddhist temple in North America. The International Buddhist Temple will take your breath away with golden statues, ornamental fountains and beautiful, serene gardens.

For something a bit more historical, check out the Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, which gives visitors a glimpse into a turn-of-the-century cannery residence and shipyard.

Those interested in urban walks will be pleased to join many of Richmond’s residents on the more than 80 kilometres of trails. Most trails are flat and wind through a variety of urban parks. If you have kids, take them to the Terra Nova Adventure Play Environment. There’s a hillside slide, a meadow maze, tandem zip-lines as well as an aerial rope walkway. The park even won a 2015 design citation from the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects.

On those very hot days spend the day at Watermania. Voted Richmond’s best family amusement centre, this waterpark has wave pools, water slides, a seahorse that spits out water, whirlpools and so much more.
