Hi looking for help in reasonable housing costs in the Richmond area. Potential to relocate to Richmond area (Oilville) from Central North Carolina. Need reasonable housing $250,000 - 300,000 area for about five years.

You'll have no problem finding family housing in Richmond at this price. Oilville is off I-64 in the West End, and the west end is the most expensive area of town, so I'd look either off 288 in Chesterfield or off 295. But I think 295 has gotten more pricey. i don't know that area as well. Also, further into the city off I-64 would be good, as you'll be commuting against traffic. It's a wonderful area, and if you're coming from the Triangle, comparable in cost, I believe. My sister was in Raleigh, but left about 5 years ago.

Thanks for the information, house hunting looks like it will start in three weeks.

Well, that's the perfect time. In your price range, I'd look at 23112, 23113, and 23236, in Chesterfield County, to start. Do you have children? If so, look for schools that feed into the following high schools: Midlothian, James River or Cosby. These are the best right now, but most of Chesterfield is really good. These would also put you very close to 288, and you can get to Oilville in probably 20 minutes, using 288 to 64W from the Midlothian area.
