[WWW]City Of Rochester News Release

City Living Sundays is a consortium of area lenders, neighborhood associations, private businesses, the Greater Rochester Association of Realtors, the Landmark Society of Western NY, Rochester City School District and the City of Rochester with the goal of marketing Rochester’s homes while promoting the unique advantages of city living.

At the annual City Living Sundays events, home shoppers can attend a “neighborhood city living expo,” participate in an informational seminar and select from the more than 100 houses to visit that will be open for sale each week in the area of the event.

One-stop home buying information booths are staffed by knowledgeable lenders, Realtors, school district personnel, and bilingual staff who can provide facts, offer advice or answer questions about all aspects of home purchase and ownership, as well as about specific homes to be open for inspection that weekend.

Neighborhood residents are on hand to describe unique qualities of their part of the city.

Visitors can register to win promotional items and tickets from Rochester’s favorite hometown sports teams: the Red Wings, Amerks, Rhinos and Knighthawks!

At the home buying seminars, bankers, Realtors and attorneys discuss the entire home buying process and visitors can find out about City housing grants. Representatives from the City School District participate in the seminars to provide information on local schools.

Fact sheets, pictures and tour maps of the properties are provided at the information sessions for the open houses.

Prospective homeowners can also "preview" the neighborhoods to be featured each Sunday by taking free tours of city neighborhoods, offered by the Landmark Society of Western N.Y. The bus tours highlight neighborhood amenities and resources, ranging from schools and shopping districts to historic sites and places of worship.


The 2010 annual celebration of city lifestyles, neighborhoods and home ownership will took place Sunday, March 21, 12 noon – 4 p.m., at East High School, 1801 E. Main St., for the city’s east area neighborhoods, and Sunday, March 28, 12 noon – 4 p.m., at Theodore Roosevelt School 43, 1305 Lyell Ave., for the city’s west area.
