Types Of Homes In Richmond

Due to the largely single population in Richmond, rental apartments are by far the most popular choice. Apartment owners generally buy as an investment rather than to live in. When it comes to ownership, townhouses are also a popular choice among the young, up-and-coming professionals who work in Melbourne but choose suburban living. 

Free-standing homes, ranging in style and size, feature some beautiful and charming period homes that typify the area. Property is currently under high demand in Richmond and this unlikely to change in the near future making the area ideal for investing in a renovation or extension to capture further capital growth opportunities.
