Whether you are looking to rent or buy, the possibilities are endless in the Syracuse area and surrounding suburbs.
Syracuse, NY is located in Onondaga County which is considered to be the Center of New York. Our central location means we’re within five hours of every major metro in the east, including New York City, Boston, Toronto, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. But your housing dollar goes much further in Syracuse with the median selling price of a home in Onondaga County being $127,000. Depending on your amenities in apartment living, the average price of monthly rent is $600 – $1000, often times including all utilities.
Living in Central New York means finding a home that meets your lifestyle—at a more affordable price than many other places in the country. Whatever your lifestyle, you’ll find plenty of choices, from apartments located within walking distance to the hospital, to apartments in the suburbs, to upscale city living, to large suburban family homes, to townhouses and patio homes for people whose children have grown or for professionals who don’t want the maintenance of a single-family house.

We are creating an atmosphere where many people like to live because of the community, the downtown and districts like Armory Square and Hanover Square offer opportunities for both renters and homebuyers.
