The city of Richmond is the second most populous city in Contra Costa County, with a population of about 105,000 people. Often overlooked and given a "bad rap", in a similar fashion as Oakland in Alameda County, because of its historically higher crime rates and lower school rankings, the city of Richmond has other similarities to Oakland that reflect favorably upon it as well: great weather, proximity to the bay (which also means ports and shipping, and the jobs that go with them), it is a large city (geographically speaking) and an older city as well (which often means better and more established parks and public services like libraries, senior centers, rec centers, athletic leagues, etc.), it is centrally located (decent commutes in most directions -- including to Marin, via the Richmond/San Rafael bridge), it has jobs, it has a marina, it is close to UC Berkeley, it is close to San Francisco, and it has a wide variety of housing in terms of style, age, size, price, and amenities. All of these positives make Richmond an often underrated and affordable place to purchase a home that potential homebuyers would be wise to look into. Areas like Point Richmond, (a historic hundred year old district that is actually the city's first settlement, and sits strategically and quite beautifully in the hills overlooking and right on the bay), are absolutely beautiful. Some other neighborhoods that have some elevation (like the Richmond Hills) afford lovely views of the bay and are beautiful as well. In fact, many businesses are just now "discovering" Richmond as a potential home for the first time, because it does have much to offer. There is no reason that residential homeowners should not follow suit, and to some extent, they are. Richmond has increased its population by 15% over the last 15 years, so it must be doing something right. Richmond also has a BART and an AMTRAK station, with 2 additional BART stations in El Cerrito, its neighbor to the south. Hilltop Mall, one of the largest malls in the east bay, is located in Richmond. Richmond was born on Pearl Harbor Day, which was December 7, 1941, when it incorporated as a city. Why city hall was meeting on a Sunday, we'll never know, but we suppose it may have been a spontaneous act of patriotism. In fact, Richmond was a major building site for the Liberty Ships during World War II -- Henry Kaiser won a ship building contract from the government, and Richmond's population ignited from 25,000 to over 100,000, as people came to build ships and support the war effort, and many stayed. ("If you build SHIPS, they will come!") After the war, the population dropped somewhat, but then came the freeways, and Richmond became a popular suburban community, annexing thousands of acres of neighboring land in the 1950's and 1960's. The 2004 California State Census counted the residential housing units in Richmond at 36,693 units. Of these, 20,894 were single family detached houses, 2,929 were single family attached houses, 12,749 were apartments, condos, or townhouses, and 121 were mobile homes.

Richmond is located on the San Pablo bay, and is the second most populous city in the county, second only to Concord. Richmond is served by the West Contra Costa Unified School district. Crime rates tend to be fairly high, while school rankings tend to be fairly low -- not the best combination. The city enjoys great weather and reasonably priced housing, though. Historic Point Richmond was the city's first neighborhood, dating back to around 1900, and it does have a very unique charm to it, as it sits very close to and overlooking the bay.
