Both downtowns have opportunities for homes that need a good fixing and can be rented. Though in terms of investing the sub burbs of Buffalo appears to have higher returns. In my area a two bed two bath condo that sells for around 160k goes for 1500+ per month. Thus allowing you to rent to professionals. If you are interested in examining properties contact me at 315-243-7504. It would be a pleasure to assist.

Pros/cons are really a matter of personal preferences; therefore if unfamiliar with the areas, it's in your best interest to take the time and visit, see all firsthand....

You have an older housing stock in Buffalo. If you can put some sweat equity in the home and screen for good tenants you can make alot of money in the Buffalo Market.

I'm not that familiar with the NY market, but my understanding was that NY was not a good investment state. Maybe I'm wrong.

From what I have heard, the best investment states are those that were hit hard by the housing bust like Florida, Nevada, Michigan, and especially Texas. Texas is a great economy for investing as we have one of the best economies in the United States, good job growth and creation, and no state income tax. Rental prices are up and purchase prices are down. It is pretty easy to earn 10% return annually on your investment here, with returns of 15 and even 20% per year possible.

I have helped investors from all over the US purchase property here in the Dallas, TX area. If you are interested, please feel free to give me a call.
