Richland Real Estate
The city of Richland in southeastern Washington might have been named after its founder, but should be thought of as a Rich Land. For eleven thousand years this region sited at a confluence of three rivers has been settled by those searching for a place where things could grow – crops, trees, fish. Families. Businesses. Wealth. Communities. They searched for a better quality of life. And more than 50,000 people have found it in Richland.
The climate here is perfect for people, with 300 days of sunshine a year, but it’s also great for grapes. Wine production is a major industry here, and wine enthusiasts can sample from the 160 vineyards producing internationally recognized wines in the region. Residents also enjoy the abundant recreational amenities provided by the rivers and gentle slopes which surround them. Many parks, including Hanford National Monument, front the rivers and flow out into them, offering kayaking, sailing, water skiing, swimming and fishing. On land, you can bike and hike the dozens of trails or just watch the amazing wildlife. Golfers may have a hard time deciding which of the ten fabulous courses in the area they want to try. Or for the more erudite, the Tri-Cities state university in North Richland offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. In addition, there is an active performing and visual arts community here, with many options for entertainment, including concerts at The Gorge, not far away. The Richland Community Center also offers a wide variety of classes and activities to keep the whole town busy.
You would think such a divine location would be high priced, and that few could afford to buy in, but the cost of living in the Tri-City area is the lowest in the state, and you can get far more for your housing dollar here. Apartments, condos, townhomes, buildable lots, and homes of all sizes and types can be found in Richland. Buyers of all ages will discover exactly what they need.
You don’t have to be wealthy to have a rich life. Create your future here, in Richland.
