Buying Real Estate in Williamsburg Should Be Considered Over Richmond, Expert Says

August 23, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ -

Richmond seems to be one of the hottest cities to live in at the moment. This doesn’t come as a surprise since neighborhoods have been improving at a breakneck speed and people are moving there steadily, increasing the population density even in the less popular areas. Because of this, homes that are located in Richmond can easily cost millions,especially in safer neighborhoods.

“Richmond real estate market has been growing for a while,”says Evan Roberts of Dependable Homebuyers. “The prices have grown too over the past decade.”

Rents in Richmond are incredibly high, as Roberts mentioned, even if a neighborhood is on the less popular or safe side of the spectrum. There are homes available, but their prices can easily be over a million. As an example, a home with one bathroom and three bedrooms can cost around four hundred thousand dollars in a less popular neighborhood and the price goes up if the home of same characteristics is in a trendy neighborhood.

Education is one of the main selling points in Richmond. Both public and private schools are excellent, even if they are harder to get into. Children have good local public schools available, as well as the city-wide technical schools or charter schools. Colleges are another important element, as some of the best ones are in this area.

Life in Richmond comes with many benefits but also many pitfalls. Metropolitan life is expensive, stressful and a daily grind, which doesn’t work for most people. To be able to afford a property in Richmond, an average person has to have many roommates, different incomes or live paycheck to paycheck. Since most people find this incredibly difficult, Roberts recommends that they look into some of the properties in a different city. A city like Williamsburg.

Considerably smaller but with the same big city vibe, Williamsburg represents a good opportunity for people who like that metropolitan feel but at a more affordable cost and a better life quality. For more information on Williamsburg and living in Williamsburg, read

Williamsburg has changed a lot over the past few years and some of the more neglected neighborhoods have improved. This growth is supported by numerous new restaurants, bars, brands and activities on the community’s part. But the real estate market in Williamsburg is less expensive, at the same time offering more charm and historical value than the more modern Richmond.

Dependable Homebuyers is just one of the real estate entities trying to provide plenty of good information and guidance when it comes to living and real estate in this area. Williamsburg has that more bohemian, relaxed spirit, while retaining all of the benefits of a metropolitan area. It’s more inexpensive and provides a decent lifestyle quality, which people appreciate. Many people have moved to Williamsburg in recent years and they are enjoying having more room to breathe financially. Even a person with a lower income has more chances to rent a bigger apartment in Williamsburg than in Richmond. For more details, contact Dependable Homebuyers directly.

Indonesian province shuts schools due to forest fire haze

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Authorities shut most schools in parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island to protect children from a thick, noxious haze as deliberately set fires burned through peatland forests, officials said Wednesday. Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said more than 3,600 fires have been detected on Sumatra and Borneo islands by weather satellites, leading to very poor air quality in six provinces with a combined population of more than 23 million. Nearly every year, Indonesian forest fires spread health-damaging haze across the country and into neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. Authorities have deployed more than 9,000 people to fight the fires, which...

Japan briefs diplomats on Fukushima nuclear water concerns

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan tried to reassure foreign diplomats Wednesday about safety at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant amid concerns about massive amounts of treated but radioactive water stored in tanks. Diplomats from 22 countries and regions attended a briefing at the Foreign Ministry, where Japanese officials stressed the importance of combating rumors about safety at the plant, which was decimated by a 2011 earthquake and tsunami, while pledging transparency. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, said last month that it would run out of storage space for the water in 2022, prompting South Korea to raise safety...

Japan urges nuke plants to prepare for decommissioning era

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's nuclear policy-setting body adopted a report Monday saying the country is entering an era of massive nuclear plant decommissioning, urging plant operators to plan ahead to lower safety risks and costs requiring decades and billions of dollars. Twenty-four commercial reactors — or 40% of Japan's total — are designated for or are being decommissioned. Among them are four reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant that were severely damaged by the massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan. The annual nuclear white paper, adopted by the Japan Atomic Energy Commission, urges utilities to learn from U.S....

Japan's move to lower South Korea trade status takes effect

Sep 22, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's downgrading of South Korea's trade status has taken effect, a decision that already set off reaction and hurt bilateral relations. As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Japanese manufacturers must apply for approval for each technology-related contract for South Korean export, such as fluorinated polyimides used for displays. South Korea's previous status as a preferential trade partner meant simpler checks on exports. Since Japan announced the decision, South Korea decided to similarly downgrade Tokyo's trade status, which will take effect next month. Seoul has also canceled a deal to share military intelligence with Japan. South Korea has accused Japan...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 22, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...
