PROS: educated population, numerous cultural interests, great schools, friendly people, beautiful seasons, parks/recreation, a lot of outdoor opportunities, Finger Lakes (wineries!), easy access to numerous cities (and Canada)
CONS: it snows (it also is sunny quite often in the winter making the snow look beautiful, in my opinion!)
We have always felt that the teachers in the area where we live (Churchville-Chili school district) are excellent and often go above and beyond- very committed to their jobs and to the community. We have also found that the families on the west side of town are friendly, down-to-earth, educated people and the community, as a whole, has a lot to offer.
Unfortunately, we are selling our home and moving (job)- but if it were up to us, we would never leave the Chili area- we truly love it here!

It really is a personal preference based upon your reasons for your move. Rochester has a great housing market, but it has been affected those that have lost their jobs. The housing market in Rochester has made an upswing in most areas, and depending on your financial resources, what type of housing you are looking for rent vs own and where you will be working, there are many great areas to choose from.
Many clients enjoy the Finger Lakes, local sports teams, and proximity to both Buffalo and Syracuse events. Being a lifelong resident I wouldn't live anywhere else. If suburbs are you choice , you can choose from many great school districts, and there is also wonderful city living with both public & private schools, plus a little stroll into the country and you can have a humble abode.
If you would like some websites to visit or people to talk to just let me know and I can forward some names and phone numbers. Not knowing your exact circumstance, I can not tell you if Rochester is your place to move or not. I am sure you can find whatever you are looking for in Rochester or the surrounding towns/ counties.
