5 Benefits of Suburban Living

Richmond Suburb LivingAre you trying to decide between the gorgeous Richmond homes for sale right in the city or in one of Richmond's delightful suburbs? Although both are great, according to recent reports, many people including millennials are choosing homes in a suburban area. Our REALTORS® give five reasons why suburbs are gaining popularity and benefits you'll enjoy with suburban living.

  1. Lower Cost of Living
    This first reason plays a huge role in suburbs rise in popularity! Homes are often far less expensive in the suburbs, but that's not all. You'll also pay less for many other things like meals and entertainment. There's a good chance your property taxes will be lower too! A lower cost of living allows your budget to go further for your household and alleviates financial stress. 
  1. Less Crime
    Smaller towns often have less crime than you'll find in the big cities. If you're looking for a safe, quiet neighborhood where you'll feel comfortable taking walks in the evening or letting your kids play outside, a suburb might be right for you.
  1. Smaller Schools
    Suburbs often have smaller schools, which means smaller class sizes and more individualized attention for your children. Many of the schools located in the Richmond area are above-average and bring excellent academic opportunities to residents. 
  1. Less Traffic
    In many of the nearby Richmond suburbs, it's possible to drive clear across town in 15 minutes. While it's still a short commute to the city, when you live in the suburbs, you won't find yourself sitting in traffic for hours every day. Not only will this save you time, but you'll also spend less on gas and put less wear and tear on your vehicle. As a bonus, you'll also enjoy a slower pace, less stress, fewer crowds, and less pollution. 
  1. Close-Knit Community
    When you live in a suburb, you have more opportunities to get to know your neighbors. This allows you to build a support structure and enjoy opportunities to get involved with your local community. Small towns also often have unique festivals, events, and quirky traditions you won't find in the big city.

    Working and going to school in a small town gives you more opportunities to be a "big fish in a small pond." You'll likely find there's less competition for jobs, and it's easier to earn an upstanding reputation in your field. In some towns, this also translates into greater job security and new opportunities.

Peter Chang Restaurants in Richmond and Glen Allen

Richmond Glen Allen Peter Chang

There are plenty of excellent places to dine out in Richmond, but if you haven't been to Peter Chang yet, you're definitely missing out. This unique Szechuan-style restaurant is a go-to destination for locals and visitors alike.

While our real estate agents prefer not to pick favorites, they can't help but rave about the outstanding dining experience at Peter Chang. Here are just a few reasons to put this restaurant on your list of Richmond's must-visit locations.

Peter Chang - An Award-Winning Chef

Since beginning his career at posh hotels in the Chinese province of Hubei, award-winning master chef Peter Chang has lived an exciting life. He has served as head chef on a popular cruise line, cooked for the Chinese embassy, and made a name for himself while cooking at the China Star restaurant in Arlington.

After receiving a few positive reviews from food critics, he virtually disappeared. For a period of time, he jumped from restaurant to restaurant across the country. With each new appearance, he gathered more loyal fans and obtained an almost mythical status. As the buzz continued to grow, so did the question, "Where will Chang show up next?"

By the time he finally settled down and opened Peter Chang in Richmond, he had earned himself a continually-growing legion of devoted followers. He now prides himself on creating the delicious and spicy Szechuan dishes that have made his restaurants so famous.

Exciting Menu Items

The menu selections at Peter Chang are sure to please your palate and leave you wanting more. Some of the most popular signature dishes include crispy pork belly, Szechuan beef, lamb chops stir-fried in chili and cumin, and duck stewed in "Ma La" sauce. The menu also includes dumplings and dim sum, hot and cold appetizers, traditional Szechuan meals, lo mein, fried rice, and popular lunch specials.

Two Great Locations in Our Community

While you're in the Richmond area, you have two great locations to choose from.

  • The original Peter Change flagship restaurant in nearby Glen Allen is located at 11424 W. Broad Street. Here you'll find a full range of menu options and a selection of beer and wine.
  • Peter Chang Scott's Addition is located at 2816 W. Broad St. in Richmond, close to the city's center. This trendy and somewhat industrial location has a slightly scaled-down food menu but is also the only Peter Chang restaurant to feature a full menu of exotic liquor drinks.

Whichever location you choose, you're sure to have a dining experience you won't soon forget.

A wide selection of restaurants is just one of the many things that make the city of Richmond such an excellent place to live and work. If you're considering making a move to the Richmond area, we would love the opportunity to show you around. Contact Napier ERA today to discuss your home-buying goals and schedule an appointment.
