Hi Micheal A,

I think you have choosen a very interesting area in which to develop. As a local realtor, I am really excited about the new developments being made in the City of Buffalo. Although it may be a changing neighborhood, I think that the probability of it being a change for the better are quite good. I am a life long resident here and have heard for too many years of the resurge that is suppose to happen downtown. I took a recent tour of the development that is newly completed, in development and proposed and I must admit, I think we are closer than we have ever been to that resurge! Let me know if I can help

Hello Michael. If I were to invest in Buffalo I would contact the local law enforcement agency and ask about crime statistics for the area that you are considering. I would also make sure that the house you are buying has been updated. There are a lot of very old homes in Buffalo and while the prices appear very affordable, you can end up buying a bottomless pit if you have to replace the plumbing, electrical and make other repairs and upgrades.
