How old to own real estate in New York State?

I’ll be 18 in 2 months, and I plan on buying a house for myself. Can I own a house at 18 in New York State? I live in Onondaga County (part of Central New York).

That’s all I need to know. Thanks. =)

    In any state, you must be 18 to sign any legal documents.

    (Of course, you also have to have enough money to pay for the house, or the ability to qualify for a mortgage.)

    18, same as everywhere in the US.
