The village of Richmond offers the atmosphere of a small town within the city – in other words, rural appeal combined with urban amenities. This developing neighbourhood in West Ottawa has charm to spare, with its well-maintained historic buildings, CC’s Corner, and abundant green space including the Richmond Conservation Area and a section of the Rideau Trail

Buying a home in Richmond Ontario
While Richmond’s current demographic is centred on older residents living in single-family homes (built in the 80s and 90s), a number of new single-family homes and townhomes are now being built or are in the planning stages, to be completed within the next 3-5 years. Paul Rushforth agent Jason Craig plans to move to Richmond himself, foreseeing that this new construction will “expand” and “reinvigorate” the small community, which will attract more young families like his.
If you’d like to buy a house in Richmond, some basic preparation will put you in a much stronger position to purchase a home you will really love.
Your Paul Rushforth agent will walk you through the process, making sure that together, we cover all the bases. These include: mortgage pre-approval (So you know exactly how much house you can afford), priority access to listings so new that they haven’t hit the market yet, submitting an offer to purchase, and finally, successfully closing on your very own Richmond home!
Selling your home in Richmond
Now is the time to sell in Richmond if you’re considering it. Pending the completion of new builds, the housing inventory levels are extremely low and selling prices are high — up 23.4% in the last 24 months!
So what, exactly, is your Richmond home worth and how should you prepare it for sale? That’s where the Paul Rushforth team comes in. We’ve guided hundreds of homeowners through the selling process, so we know what works. And we make it easy for you.
Our professional agents will take care of selling your home, with proven strategies for staging, pricing, marketing, managing a bidding war, and more. We’ll find serious, qualified buyers, maximizing your home’s exposure to the right people.
Most importantly, we help you sell your home fast for the best price.
