I personally just closed a deal in December with Carole Snow at Remax First (585-330-6013) and would highly recommend you contact her. She can guide you though the whole process and has solid professional contacts in Rochester. For a PM, I just starting using Ricole Property Management and they have been wonderful so far. Avoid a company called Custom Realty for PM services-totally useless!

Regarding your budget, I would say up it to at least $20k or you'll probably end up in the red, over time. Good luck!

Rochester have many low priced homes !
Make sure you get good management company if you are not going to be present all the time!

IMO that probably won't fly. Repairs and renovations alone can easily surpass $5000. Furthermore rents are under pressure, causing increased vacancy time, and pricing pressure on rents.

I would like to refer you to an excellent Realtor and investment counselor in Rochester, Roger Benton who is with Nothnagle Realtors.

I used him myself and was extremely satisfied with his quality of service and professionalism. I refer all of my Rochester clients to him.
