If you're looking to sell a home around Western New York right now, you're in good timing and if you know someone who's about to be looking – pass this along! It's a good thing for Buffalo but not necessarily for buyers as the housing market gets hotter, the prices go up.

According to the Washington Post, Erie County and Buffalo are at the top of the list for increased property values. The improved job growth and booming economy in Buffalo and the surrounding areas has helped the cause. Arguably, the most dramatic increase in property value has been around Elmwood, which has seen an increase of nearly 100 percent since 2004.
