Please provide a specific address if you would like information on a property. Purchasing a foreclosure is a risky venture if you don't know what you're doing. It also requires all cash. You should be working with a title company to make sure you're in the correct position and there are no IRS rights of first redemption. If you have a real estate attorney that should be your first call.

It all depends on your personal preferences. A corner lot may have a bigger yard and views in different directions. But also, homes on a corner tend to have more traffic. If you have kids who are going to be playing in the yard or if noise bothers you, then it may not be ideal for you. ... more

My husband and I made this choice last year. We were in a 14618 area code, Brighton address, Pittsford schools. We then moved to 14534 Pittsford area. We like both schools and each has its own strengths. Really the decision is about what type of home do you want? Age and Size play a big factor.. since the types of homes vary greatly between each town. Also what type of lifestyle are you looking for, privacy, sidewalks, close to town, large lot etc.

In regards to the school districts, it is on a street by street basis.

By the way, we moved to the Rochester area from out of state... I understand Relocation and the challenge of finding a community that fits.

Happy to assist in any way.

Both areas are wonderful yet very different living flavor that will appeal to one's taste. Pittsford people will tell you Pittsford is the best, Brighton people will tell you Brighton is the best. I would advise you to spend some time here to experience the true differences, don't rely on others on this issue.

I've moved to 9 cities in 28 years. I love Rochester.
However, it takes 2 years to understand the community you live in, the traffic flow, political drift, and demographic trends and the relative layout and proximity to services. Rent if you can stand it.
Be well.
