You don’t have to be a big city fan to get some great properties in New York. The state is huge, it has mountain property, lakeside property and of course penthouses in one of the most breath-taking cities in the world. Here we take a look at some of the best places you can buy property throughout the state.

New York State Property

Wilmington, NY is close to Lake Placid and has excellent log cabins and other mountain properties for sale. The area is peaceful although popular with tourists during the warmer months. Saranac Lake is perfect if you prefer lakeside property. There are homes that have their own jetty so easy for mooring a small boat. Lakeside living is great for those who love watersports, or simply to take a swim each day.

Bargain property can be bought in the area of New York state that is close to Niagara Falls. The cities of Buffalo and Erie have some of the lowest priced property to buy, but it does come with risks. The crime rate in these areas is higher and many of the properties are foreclosures, so not in the best state of repair. However, if you are looking for a bargain as an investment, or a starter home then it could be perfect for you.

New York City

New York City has some of the most expensive property of any city in the world. You can expect to pay millions of dollars for a small apartment in Manhattan, but if you choose one of the other boroughs, such as Queens or Brooklyn, you can get a home in a very trendy area but with less stress on the bank balance. A property on the Upper East Side might be a dream for many, but Brownstone in Brooklyn can offer the best of both worlds.
