It is SOOO cheap to buy houses here, and you can find absolutely gorgeous ones for ridiculously low prices. It already was a cheap city to live in, and it's now a buyer's market.Hey Guys,
So I'm from out of state and I'm looking to buy a house near the University of Buffalo, anyone who goes there know any neighborhoods that are fairly reasonable(price wise) and also are close to campus? Thanks!
I wouldn't buy in that area just south of campus and west of Eggert Rd (there are some good places west of Eggert that are north of campus). I also wouldn't buy south of the 33. You can find houses for like 15k, but it's not worth it.I'm assuming that you guys would recommend not to purchase houses south of campus? I've seen some really cheap houses within 3 miles of campus, but theyre south in Buffalo, not Amherst or the other areas.
It's obvious that it will depend on the price of the home, but the thing to watch out for is that property taxes in NY are OUTRAGEOUS!!!. I purchased a home for 75k. It is roughly 1500 sq ft, 3 bed, 1.5 bath, full basement. My mortgage without taxes or insurance is roughly 450 each month, but after taxes and insurance figure in, my mortgage is 837 each month.When you guys say cheap prices for big houses in Northern Buffalo, how much is the monthly mortgage payment on average?
I live in Cheektowaga.There are plenty of nice homes in the 60-80k range just north of campus in Tonawanda or just east in Cheektowaga. Do not live off of Bailey south of campus unless you are prefer the ghetto. There are shootings, robberies and everything else that comes with the hood there, its not worth worrying about your safety and the safety of others who live with you.
