Fun facts about Richland housing…

I went to this page and then clicked on ‘Letter Houses’ under Richland, in the Architectural History section, along the left-hand column.

There are loads of the A’s, B’s, C’s and F’s still around.  They’re easy to spot.  If we ever turned into an area with a huge housing need and no more land upon which to build, these homes would be snapped up and completely remodeled.  Some people have done it already, but usually most look like a regular house that has been maintained.  Few houses have been torn down to the studs and then re-built maintaining the original floorplan.  Mostly because the original plans are smaller than what we’re used to today.  One bathroom?  Are you kidding me?  No garage?  What?

Have fun looking at the old Richland houses.  Remember, they were designed back when anyone over 40 probably remembered using outhouses, so this whole indoor plumbing thing was pretty cool.  Even if there was only one toilet for a family of six!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
