  • Housing Statistics Rochester is lucky to claim the lowest real estate prices in all of New York State. The average price for a home in the first quarter of 2013 was $110,955, with the median price being $95,097. A total of 561 homes were sold in this same period of time. There are a total of 89,845 homes in Rochester, with a good balance of renters and owners, but a higher rate of renters, probably due to the colleges in the city. Owners make up 33 percent of structures and renters make up 58 percent, leaving an eight percent vacancy rate, which is higher than the national average. This high vacancy rate allows renters and buyers to be picky when it comes to choosing a place to live. Rent to own houses are also available in the area.
  • Arts and Culture Rochester is full of cultural attractions and entertainment options with an educational or intellectual twist. The Rochester Contemporary Art Center is particularly popular, as is the Memorial Art Gallery -- both present fine art. The Garth Fagan Dance is a cultural institution, as is the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Kids especially appreciate the Strasenburgh Planetarium's fascinating exhibits.
  • Local Sports Rochester is a mecca of recreational activity, with both college and professional sports. Professional teams include the Rochester Red Wings baseball team, Rochester Americans hockey team, Rochester Rhinos soccer team and the Rochester Razorsharks basketball team. Golf is another popular pastime in this city that hosts the Ryder's Cup, PGA and Men's U.S. Open at varying times.
  • Neighborhoods Rochester has dozens of smaller neighborhoods and 17 main ones. Some have more prolific residential areas, and those are worth focusing on. Buyers or renters should take some time to familiarize themselves with each area's nuances before committing.
