Where can I go to find out if I can buy any of those empty houses? Thank you!

@Natalie – Not sure what you mean, exactly. These are all houses with owners that plan/want to renovate them and need Commission of Architectural Review approval. There’s no way to know if they plan to sell them, rent them, or live in the houses themselves. Maybe try contacting a realtor?

project Homes does intend to sell both 2013 and 2015 Venable St to owner occupants who do not exceed the 80% Average Median Income for Richmond. There is buyer assistance available for closing costs and down payment.

We should have these done around October this year and would love to start a conversation with anyone who has interest. Please email or call me at or 804-306-9019 for more information.
