Try North Winton Village area on the east side of the city. There are some really nice properties in that general price range. I recommend you stay east of Culver Road.

I don't know where in Greece you are looking... but there are some parts of Greece that border parts of the City (parts of the city where I, and my family, once lived) that I would not suggest living by... Where are you looking at exactly? I would try and look West of Mt Read Blvd.... use that as a dividing line...not to be totally stuck up... but I lived in the 10th Ward of the City and things are really bad there right now... and that would give you enough of a buffer zone.

If you want in the suburbs, Gates and Chili both have homes in that price range and both are between Greece and the airport. But you are welcome to move here with us in Greece!

We own a house with an apt. that we rent so our taxes, utility and such would be different. We moved from the D/FtW area of Texas. We expected our property tax and utilities to be higher, they average out about the same.

In greece, in my parents old neighborhood off ridge road, there are many houses in the 80k range. Still a safe area for the most part, but a little sketchy the closer you get to the edge of the neighborhood closest to ridge road (they lived on Cabot Road fairly close to ridge). A good buy for a first time homebuyer/young family. Taxes will be in the 2500-3000 range.

I agree, I bought a house a couple months ago for $85 in that section of the city. If you go west of Culver it's a night and day difference in the neighborhood.

Is North Winton really that cheap? I thought most houses in that part of the city were atleast in the 100k range.

The houses along Grand, Garson, MacBeth, McKinley and Melville and all along the state streets (Wisconsin, Illinois, etc) between Culver and Winton tend to be in the $70,000 to $90,000 range. This used to be a Dutch neighborhood in the 1920s and the construction quality is fantastic. You can also find homes in this range east of Winton (though more rarely). It is east of Winton that you tend to find homes breaking the $100,000 mark. Of course, in Browncroft itself (e.g., Dorchester) you could expect to pay $200,000 +. There are also good deals ($70,000s) on Marion, Floverton, Middlesex, Coventry and in that general area nearer to Henry Hudson school (this is in a corner of the 14610 zip code).

Also, a neighborhood I can't believe hasn't been mentioned, the gentrifying South Wedge neighborhood just south of downtown. Many civil war era to turn of the century homes that are probably still in that pricerange that may need a little work, but are in an improving and charming area of the city with some nice walkable ammenities.

So, pretty much the neighborhoods around East High are where the nicest city neighborhoods are in Rochester?
