Hello, we are trying to find a rental as we are moving to Richmond from FL.

What are the undesirable areas we should stay away from? Work will probably be around Glen Allen. Not definite yet.

Thank you.

Are you planning on living in the city or suburbs?

There are no "no go zones" in the suburbs around here. Some areas are nicer than others but they are all safe and livable. Where you choose to live will ultimately come down to budget and commute. You work in Glen Allen so you will most likely want to stay in Western Henrico. Areas such as Glen Allen, Tuckahoe, Laurel, Dumbarton, Short Pump etc. It can be one of the more pricy parts of the city. Northern Henrico and Hanover County will be an option as well. Areas such as Atlee, Ashland, Elmont etc. This area may be somewhat more affordable than Western Henrico, I'm not sure. What type of commute are you willing to put up with? Traffic isn't too bad here.

Thank you for your response...we did notice that the commute in Richmond is not bad at all. Although we haven't spent a considerable amount of time there. Compared to Denver or Miami it seems a piece of cake. I would be comforable with up to 30-40 min commute. We did go to Ashland and liked it.

for that commute you can live anywhere. Traffic is getting worse as RVA grows, but it's still nothing by other city standards
