Syracuse Most Affordable Major Market

I'm originally from California and I can tell you that it's much, much easier to buy a house here! (I've been here long enough that a $200,000 house seems expensive!)

You can find nice houses here under 100k! It's actually more expensive to rent here than it is to buy, which is why a lot of investors buy property in Syracuse.

It's Lilac Time

Every May, the Lilacs bloom for 3-4 weeks and it's just beautiful. I took this photo while I was taking pictures of an apartment building. Sometimes I go to buildings that have been abandoned or neglected as part of my job and they will have these wild overgrown gardens and I can tell someone really loved the property at one time and took good care of it. It's kind of bittersweet.

Arty Spring Tulips

I was struck by the contrast of these bright tulips next to the black wall in my neighbor's yard. Sadly all the photos came out blurry, so I played around with it in an editing program.
