It is an often-considered factor for families when moving: are we in a good school district? It is a legitimate concern, and we here at Cindy Petty Realty understand this. It is something that we take into consideration when showing homes to buyers. Knowing this, we thought we'd use this month's blog as a sort of How-To guide. In this post, we'll discuss the top ways to determine how to find a home near the best schools.
When seeking out a new place to live, we suggest first doing your research. Some key sources you should be using for this include...
Your Realtor - The realtor you go to will be the most knowledgeable person on the subject. He or she will be able to tell you if the neighborhood you're looking in is a nice fit and is within a good district.
Online Communities - When people go online to express an opinion, you know that means they are passionate. Look for online communities and review sites; they'll provide varied opinions you can read through. This may give you an objective outlook.
School District's Website - Finally, we suggest you visit the school's website. Sure, the site will tell you it is the greatest, but there's more to it than that. What do you actually see when you look at the site? Are there initiatives and activities you want your child to participate in?
Once you get to the new area where you're going to live - most likely as you're going to view homes in the area - we suggest you see for yourself. When you go and assess the school for what it really is, and not just trust what you see online, you have a valid and legitimate opinion of the school. You get to determine if it's the best for your child.
The fact of the matter is, it is key that you find the best fit for you and your family. If that means you ask a lot of questions, we completely understand. We at Cindy Petty Realty are patient and kind. We're ready to show you your dream home within your dream school district. Contact us today! (469) 360-9917
