"Run Down and Dangerous"

If you are looking for rock bottom house prices—the lowest in the Bay Area, probably—then you have come to the right place. Parchester Village is the neighborhood on the far northwestern end of Richmond.

Of course there is a price to pay for this savings. Namely it comes in the homes which look pretty run down and ramshackle. There is, of course, the problem of crime as well which is fairly prevalent in the area. Even though this is a small neighborhood there 6 sex offenders who live here and there have been a dozen assaults reported in the last six months and several vehicle recoveries as well.

Schools are mostly pretty bad as well, except for the nearby high school,

Overall, I would really not feel safe living here.
  • Very Inexpensive
  • Okay Public Transportation
  • Off the Beaten Track
  • Dangerous
  • Rundown
  • No Local Conveniences
