Hi Mark. Where are you in Scotland? My husband is from Glasgow and we live in Rochester. There are all kind of reasons why there are so many properties available. Bad money management and property management are probably the biggest culprits. Landlords pulling all of the equity out of a property to fund other projects that then have a vacancy or two that they didn't put aside a reserve fund for. That doesn't mean there aren't tons of great properties in Rochester that you can make $ on. Check out the link below about Rochester's Cash Flow opportunities....there are neighborhoods with good, low vacancy rates and of course, those that are a little trickier...Be glad to talk with you further...Gail Smith

Hi Mark, I am a residential real estate appraiser in Rochester, NY, and I am also a licensed realtor and would be happy to help you find and/ or value properties in this area. Real estate in this area tends to be pretty low when compared to other urban areas. There are some areas that are more expensive, but then, of course, your investments would have a higher profit in those areas. In addition, Rochester has quite a few colleges and universities and properties in those areas often bring in higher rental profits as well. I'd be happy to discuss this with you further. Please email me at

Rental properties in the right price range(monthly rent), proximity and features will be the deciding factor of any investment in income properties. Along with bad management, bad planning and in come cases...greed. After dealing with several out of state and international buyers, I have developed a list of questions and requirements to answer.
