Neighborhood Spotlight: Richardson

Welcome to Richardson

Cozy suburbs with all of the conveniences of a big city.
When you’re exploring properties in and around Dallas, don’t miss Richardson. Located just 20 minutes outside of the city center, Richardson is close to everything Dallas offers and provides residents with its own selection of wonderful schools, shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation. Whether you want to stay close to home or have a fun time in Dallas, options abound.
Richardson is also ideal for those who desire a small-town feel alongside big-city amenities. As a resident, you’ll have access to top big-box retailers, as well as one-of-a-kind establishments that you can’t find outside of town. This mingling of national chains and locally owned businesses makes it easy to find exactly what you want when you want it.
Another perk of moving to Richardson is affordability. The median list price of homes is around $360,000. Comparing prices of similar properties in nearby areas, you have the potential to save well over $100,000. The majority of the homes are single-family ranch-style builds from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. However, there is also a healthy selection of newer builds available.
