When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

You will possibly qualify for an fha loan with 3.5% down if you havd some savings . i work with first time buyers and use local rochester lenders so my clients can walk into an office if needed. I would be glad to review your options. If now is not the right time i work with many banks that offer home buyer savings programs that will match $4 for every dollar you put in up to $7500 FOR you to use as a down payment. You can contact me directly at 585-236-7780.

Jonathan, Thanks for the question. As a first time home buyer there can be several grants you may be able to obtain. Most are income qualifying and require you to purchase either in certain areas and certain homes. Everything depends on your financial circumstances and past borrowing history. If you are a veteran, there may also be other forms of assistance and some with no down payments needed. You would need to talk to a trusted loan professional and give him/her your information. Some areas may have USDA assistance where you come to the closing table with less money. Lastly if you do not have 20% to put down then you would being using an FHA loan which allows you to only put down 3.5% of the purchase price plus be able to ask the seller to pay seller concessions up to 6% of the purchase price. Without knowing your specifics that is all the information I can give you.
I would be glad to recommend local loan professionals to get you pre-approved, which will give you a better idea financially where you stand, or speak to you further about the home buying process.
Feel free to contact me today and I will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Call/txt me at 585-236-7780 or email me at or

Have a Great Day,

Susan Hughes answered:
I agree with Brad's answer, however you also need to look at the services that may be included in the taxes paid. For example, some villages include trash pickup in their taxes or police services. One always has to keep the assessed value in mind when evaluating properties as well--some values may be overassessed and the owner should appeal them through the town. I have represented buyers for whom the taxes in Irondequoit were considered a factor in their decisionmaking process, particularly those who were first-time homebuyers. Of course, there are many factors in the home buying process, but they certainly play a role when buyer or selling a home. ... more

It certainly is provided there are no "unusual" circumstances. I have used Domicello Brothers in the past with great success for both residential and commercial work:

I hope the information is helpful.
