Good news for sellers: in upstate New York, just off of Lake Ontario, Rochester housing inventory is flying off the shelves.
In fact, data from the New York State Association of Realtors shows that in Q1 of 2019, Monroe County only had a 1.3 month supply of homes on the market—the lowest of any county listed in the state. At $127,000, Rochester’s median home sales price is 51% more affordable than the national average, according to the Greater Rochester Enterprise data.
But that doesn’t mean that sellers are off the hook. Buyers have caught the HGTV bug, and are looking for a Property Brothers–style reveal.
