Is there a better area than the 19th ward in Rochester, NY to buy rental properties?

Asked by Kellan, Mon Jun 4, 2012

I'm interested in purchasing a rental property in Rochester, and wanted some input from locals on neighborhoods. I know the 19th ward is considered a pretty good area for owning a rental. Are there other comparable areas?

I offer priority access to a complete and exclusive survey of only the cash flow leaders in 2-4 family properties throughout 3 counties. Lists can also be customized for you with single-family rentals. This approach shortens your learning curve, and separates in advance for you the many pretenders from the few contenders for profitability in Greater Rochester.

The South wedge is an excellent area for investment. It has great access to hospital employees as tenants and South Ave has be resurgent with restaurants, shops, and retail.
I have a property that is coming back on the market after the deal fell through. Its a 2 family, a few short blocks from the hospital and one block from South Ave. Go to my website: for more on the house and my contact information.
Look forward to hearing from you.
