Chisholm states in the article that the meteoric rise in the Richmond multifamily market is due to “…a lot of empty nesters and individuals that are going to sell their house. The kids are off at school or grown and living elsewhere and they don’t want to deal with maintenance of the house and want the flexibility to be mobile and travel. Apartment living is also attractive to young professionals who want the flexibility to move.”
