Other Pertinent Facts

Courtesy Mike Puma, Views of Buffalo:
  • The City of Buffalo enables qualified buyers to purchase a home that has been deemed "homestead eligible" for $1.00 and there are plenty of properties left. There are three main requirements when purchasing a homestead property; the owner must fix all code violations within 18 months, have immediate access to at least $5000, and live there for at least three years. You also have to cover the closing costs of the purchase.
  • As a homeowner with a contributing home you can get a 20% tax credit for qualified rehab work. Examples of qualified rehab work include a roof replacement, electrical and plumbing systems, window replacement, etc. There are three requirements to enroll in the program: the rehab cost must be at least $5000, 5% of that must be spent on the exterior ($250), and home must be a contributing structure.
