Hi it all depends on what you can afford. First time home buyers tend to start in Kenmore/Tonawanda, Amherst/Snyder area, Cheektowaga. Do you know what you can afford? Have you looked at any homes you might be interested it? A Realtor can guide you in the right steps in finding a home that is in a good neighborhood for a small family.

We as Licensed Real Estate professionals in NYS are very limited in what can be said about neighborhood conditions and surroundings. It sounds like you would be renting as opposed to buying. I recommend that you contact:

I recommend you ask an attorney since they will be the experts in that area. There are many advocate groups in Buffalo that can give you assistance.

Elaine Hegedusich answered:
If I were you, I would check with City Hall. They will be able to give you accurate advice with regards to the laws and ordinances that may affect you. The apartment owner may have violated laws by not having CO2 detectors, and not having a properly working heating system. From a personal stand point, and as a rental property owner myself, If you are leaving the property in the same or better condition than when you arrived, I would be giving you back your security deposit. However, when you noticed that there were problems, you should have notified him immediately.
I strongly suggest that when you move into your new place that you take pictures before you move in, so that when you move out, and want your security deposit returned, you will have proof of what the place looked like.
I wish you luck, and hope this has helped you.

Check out the New York State Department of Education website. You will find that each school district has a "report card" that breaks rates academic success in the elementary, middle and high schools. You will not only be able to access information on Cheektawaga but other districts as well. With this information you will be able to make your own comparisons.

Good luck,
The "Eckler Team"

Hi Karen
If your realtor voided the contract, it is really to your benefit. Interview other agents right the way, maybe they will be a better fit for you.
You could call your agent’s broker that she works for and discuss the problems you were having with this particular agent. ... more

yes, you can call the principal broker, they are responsible for all of the brokers actions. Also sometimes calle dteh managing broker in large firms or franchises. You always have the right to ask for a release in writing if they have not lived up to their end of the deal. Gove a call and watch things change. Good luck Karen. ... more

The most breathtaking site on my trip to Niagara Falls in October 1999 was dirving out towards Rochester, coming to the top of the escarpment and seeing hundreds of square miles of amazing fall colors below me. Okay, the falls and the whirlppol were pretty good too. ... more

Jerry Thompson II answered:
This is a good question for someone to ask particularly shopping for a new build, allthough I am not certain there is a easy or even good ansewer. Both communitys are excellent with good schools, close proximity to the city and some local industry of their own, and both have many new construction subdivisions and homes to chose from. I would suspect you'll find the numbers are similar in both communitys and will be dependent upon our regional growth, rates of inflation, interest rates and economy. I don't think you can go wrong with either community.

The one feature you may want to lookm closlely at is how many new homes will still be being built in 5 - 10 years near the area you want to build in, One item that can often impact the re-sale on a newer home is if you are selling in 5 years and there are still many being built in your neighborhood, this can often lead to you having to be competitive with the same builder who built yours, this has not happend much as of late due to the high costs of constuction materials, but I have had many an experience over the last fifteen years where the new build market was priced the same as the 2 or 3 year old home in the same subdivision, and if the costs of lumber changes it would be more difficult to optimize your value.
