One student said “There are many great programs for first-time buyers in the area.  I purchased a condo and paid it off during medical school.  I now have a nice down payment on my next place.  Condos cost as low as $60,000.”

Depending on your income, the Town of Amherst has a First Time Home Buyers Program that helps covers the closing cost and some of the down payment. Please see the information below:

Please note that closing in NYS can take up to 2 months so it is important to start looking now if you are going to buy!
