Buffalo Property Market and Real Estate Guide

(Buffalo, New York - NY, USA)

Image of Buffalo City HallWith Buffalo's relatively close proximity to New York, the city is a top residential location choice for many and is often regarded as being one of the best places in the US to raise a family. There are many different styles of real estate on offer here and residents enjoy taking part in the numerous local community events common in the city.

Many of the houses and homes in Buffalo were constructed between 1865 and 1965 as few buildings survived the Civil War, and the city was essentially completed by the mid-60s. Some areas of the city, however, boast exceptions to this, and new-build apartments and condos are often found in the more cosmopolitan areas.

The employment rate in the city is impressive, giving it a strong liveable-draw, and its natural surroundings attract outdoor enthusiasts, since Lake Erie and the Niagara River are both located within a short distance. Property in the central areas of the city is highly suitable for business people, with families choosing to reside in the communities on the fringes on the city, where many schools are located.

Renting Serviced Apartments

There are many serviced apartments for rent in Buffalo, due to its strong business and commercial structure. Ellicott and Lovejoy areas are home to a range of cheap, basic rentals which usually offer short contracts and essential amenities, while the Upper West Side and Elmwood Village are home to plusher options that command around two or three times the price.

Buying Apartments and Houses

Buying property in Buffalo is fairly straightforward as long as the correct visas are in place, as well as proof of financial status, which ensures buyers are able to live in the US with financial stability. Solicitors and estate agents are a must here and criminal checks, as well as other background details, will be stringently examined. This is a time-consuming yet relatively simple process.

Real Estate Agents

There are many cultures, religions, races and ethnicities residing in Buffalo. As a result, real estate agents here speak a variety of languages including English, Spanish and Italian, along with Lebanese and Polish. If you need an agent who speaks a particular language, an Internet search is the best option, with inquiries in specific local communities also a good way to find out more.
