Niagara Falls Real Estate
Niagara Falls New York offers something for everyone.
Niagara Falls is a city in Niagara County, New York, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 50,193, down from the 55,593 recorded in the 2000 census. It is adjacent to the Niagara River, across from the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and named after the famed Niagara Falls which they share. The city is within the Buffalo–Niagara Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area and the Western New York region.
While the city was formerly occupied by Native Americans, Europeans who migrated to the Niagara Falls in the mid-17th century began to open businesses and develop infrastructure. Later in the 18th and 19th centuries, scientists and businessmen began harnessing the power of the Niagara River for electricity and the city began to attract manufacturers and other businesses drawn by the promise of inexpensive hydroelectric power. After the 1960s, however, the city and region witnessed an economic decline, following an attempt at urban renewal under then Mayor Lackey. Consistent with the rest of the Rust Belt as industries left the city, old line affluent families relocated to nearby suburbs and out of town.
Despite the decline in heavy industry, Niagara Falls State Park and the downtown area closest to the falls continue to thrive as a result of tourism. The population, however, has continued to decline from a peak of 102,394 in the 1960s due to the loss of manufacturing jobs in the area.

Niagara Falls Foreclosures
Niagara Falls foreclosures are a good way to earn a little sweat equity. Most foreclosures require some degree of updating and repair. There are a couple types of foreclosures. For instance, there are bank foreclosures and there are HUD foreclosures. HUD foreclosures are homes where the owners had an FHA loan. An FHA loan is insured by the United States Government. If a person defaults on their loan the bank will call in the insurance from the government and turn the home over to HUD (Housing and Urban Development) who will in turn put the home on the market and sell it to the highest bidder. There is always a good selection of bank owned homes on the market. Here is a short list of foreclosure homes in Niagara Falls currently available.
