What $1,100 Gets You in Buffalo’s Elmwood Village

When I was a kid (1970s) my father’s Elmwood Village apartments earned between $200 and $400 a month in rent on a premier street. Today the rents are five and six times that amount.  Even at prices hovering in the low $1,000s a month range, Buffalo is still a bargain compared to other cities.  With the city’s economy starting to show a heartbeat once again the bargains may soon vanish in the best neighborhoods.

Here is a nice Elmwood Village place recently posted on Craig’s List – 1,000 a month for 1,400 square feet of space; lots of charm, lots of wood work, a fireplace, and a beautiful original kitchen:

Quiet, owner occupied lower apartment available July 1st. 2 bedrooms + office on Manchester Place, steps from Elmwood Avenue. 1400 sq. ft., large front porch, lots of storage, hardwood floors throughout. Living room with fireplace, dining room with original oak paneling and ceiling beams, recently renovated kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and stove provided. Bonus sunroom / walk-in closet / 2nd office.

Personal washer and dryer in the basement. $1100 + utilities (1st month and security deposit due at lease signing). Water, recycling, and garbage included.

Strong, active block club and friendly neighbors give this home a welcoming and inviting feel.

Check out the listing on Craig’s List, 68 Manchester Place.
