Binghamton has had a relatively stable housing market. It didn’t reach great heights during the boom and hasn’t crashed either. The city in upstate New York is home to Binghamton University, one of the nation’s highest-ranked public universities. The area also has an opera company, minor league baseball, and nearby hiking and fishing opportunities.
