The city of Richland has been named one of the top cities in Washington by Movoto real estate research blog. Richland is the only Eastern Washington city that made the list and came in at number 10, directly behind Seattle. The basis for the ranking is from commute times to living costs to crime rates, education and value of homes. With Richland’s low cost of living and 20 minute average commute time, the city of more than 15,000 people gave Movoto the ability to single them out. Richland also scored well with a solid median household income of over $65,000 and a crime rate 3% below the state average.
