Most Expensive Richmond Neighborhoods
Richmond is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 108,565 people and 24 constituent neighborhoods, Richmond is the 61st largest community in California.
Housing costs in Richmond are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Richmond is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Richmond is a city of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Richmond who work in office and administrative support (11.33%), sales jobs (9.51%) and maintenance occupations (8.98%).
Also of interest is that Richmond has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Another interesting thing about Richmond, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Richmond is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
One downside of living in Richmond, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.34 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Richmond is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the subway helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Richmond area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
The overall education level of Richmond is somewhat higher than in the average US city of 21.84%: 25.65% of adults 25 and older in the city have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Richmond in 2010 was $25,769, which is middle income relative to California, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $103,076 for a family of four. However, Richmond contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Richmond is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Richmond home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
