Beechwood has lots of potential and needs quality investors and homeowners, not absentee landlords who don't care for the neighborhood. Beechwood is economically, racially and socially diverse. I have lived here for 10 years and have great neighbors. There is a VERY active neighborhood group who embraces committed people wanting the best for the City of Rochester, specifically Beechwood.

The Beechwood area of Rochester is very old, the houses are not in good repair. I live across Culver road from Beechwood, and, in thirty years, my husband has not allowed me to take walk or ride my bike over there. They keep trying to revitalize it, but to no avail. If you buy rental property, you will be handling mostly Section 8 people. That being said, there are some nice pockets in the Beechwood neighborhood, but, unfortunately, there are surrounded by the rest of it.

Wayne, Properties throughout Rochester are modestly priced--which is why the area is drawing investor attention from around the country, and in your case, from abroad. Beechwood is one of those neighborhoods just beginning to benefit from renewed interest in urban pioneers and city planners encouraging the redevelopment of the Eastside. Good luck w/your investment.
