Home ownership is encouraged and supported in Syracuse for qualifying buyers and for certain neighborhoods for any buyers. If you are thinking of buying in the Syracuse University neighborhoods, for example, there are a variety of programs to assist, some of which can be used in combination with each other. Other programs from HUD and the city can help with the purchase of an existing home in the City of Syracuse. A few special mortgages can be applied to houses outside these locales.
There are three organizations that have programs to assist with buying and owning a home:
University Neighborhood Preservation Association
Syracuse University Real Estate Office
