For example. In assisting a client moving from Rochester to the McLean, VA area, the house they wanted was almost 300% more than what they would pay in Rochester. But the taxes were 1/3 of what they were paying here. When we did their estimated per month Principle, Interest, Taxes and Insurance (PITI) for both houses and compared, they were only a few hundred dollars apart.
Rochester is a GREAT place to live and the quality of life is unlimited. IF you are looking to live in this area, do as many of my other clients have. Come spend two hours with me and I'll show you why Rochester is worth it.

Rochester is inexpensive to live across the board, but that also means you get paid less and jobs are more scarce.
Also, do not expect to see the Sun for all of February. And dont expect to see the ground from Jan-March. And, worst of all, if you are a fan of the only true NY team, the Buffalo Bills, you cant see them on local TV. They will only play the new Jersey Jets and Giants. That is probably the main reason why housing is so cheap.
- cold winters (maybe this will change with global warming)
- short hot summers (high utilities bills for heat in winter and AC in summer)
- few decent jobs (big employers like Kodak and Bausch & Lombe have been laying people off in the region)
- crime in some inner city neighborhoods
I think Rochester has alot of potential though. Syracuse is another city I would put into this category.
The eastern most cities of the rust belt.
Right now the real estate market is hurting in some parts of the US - we are staying fairly stable.
Investment property here can be very lucrativeâ€“depending on where you do it and what you want to do with it.
I hope this helps. I'll look for some more information for you and pass it along.
