Richfield House Hunt: Oliver Avenue

Buyers have lots of choices, but homes sell quickly

Homes are still selling well in Richfield as the real estate season moves into the fall selling market. Richfield’s location near both downtown areas, parks in nearly every neighborhood, access to shopping and restaurants and a city government that knows to plan ahead continues to attract first-time buyers.

Homes in Richfield are solidly built with cute mid-century touches, unlike many homes in other more far-flung suburbs. It’s a town with the advantages of living in the main city but with a small town feel. These homes, all located on Oliver Ave., a prime Richfield location, are waiting for new owners who appreciate the city’s appeal:
