What to Consider When Moving to a New City

We understand that a lot goes into relocating. Here are some key components to think about when choosing a new city to call home.

Your Home

Whatever the vision is for your home, Auburn offers unique housing opportunities for all types of buyers and renters looking for their next address. If you are a homeowner, consider your style options of colonial, farmhouse, contemporary, ranch, cottage, or cape cod. For renters, our city offers a variety of downtown upper-level apartments, complexes, and multi or single-family homes.

With Auburn’s cost of living being 23.6% lower than the U.S. average, the city provides affordable living while still being within the Finger Lakes region and in proximity to major surrounding cities like Toronto, Philadelphia, and New York. Translation? Say goodbye to financial stress and harsh work commutes.

Your Community

You have found a residence you love. Now, have you met your neighbors? Auburn is full of caring individuals and resources. As the county seat of Cayuga County and its largest city, Auburn is a key location for exploration, small business, and community.

If you are a student, raising a family, or both, Auburn puts education at the forefront with its schools and community resources. With the student to teacher ratio being 13 to one and public schools spending $4,125 more per student than the U.S. average, students are part of an environment that assists academic achievement. Further educational opportunities lie in the 20+ colleges located in the city’s 50-mile radius and the community’s celebration of New York State history. Historic landmarks like the Harriet Tubman Home or the Seward House Museum share the stories of American heroes, while centers like the Schweinfurth Art Center and the Cayuga Museum inspire creativity and the art of invention.

Your Lifestyle

Life in Auburn means connection. You will come to know the barista making your coffee each morning, the business owner around the corner that makes you laugh, or the local creative that shares their work at the weekly market. With its unique location, residents can experience green spaces alongside urban social scenes. Owasco Lake is only a 10-minute walk from downtown, where you can spend the day enjoying the waterfront and green spaces of Emerson Park. Then head back downtown for a bite to eat and to see a production at the Auburn Public Theater or a game at Falcon Park cheering on the Auburn Doubledays.
