First Time Home Buyers Charlotte NC

Subject: Grading Local Schools

When thinking of buying a home, most people research various neighborhood amenities, including local schools. Regardless of whether you have children, schools can affect property values and are an important consideration when buying a home.

Here are four ways to tell if area schools are having problems:

Local test scores low or dropping
Low test scores can be a product of resource shortages, poor teachers, lack of commitment by the school district or parents.

Student enrollment dropping
If fewer families are moving into the neighborhood, or parents are choosing schools outside the neighborhood, the school may be having problems.

Poorly maintained or vandalized buildings
Inadequate upkeep may be a sign of funding shortages and low involvement from parents.

Troubles at PTA meetings
Tension among parents or between parents and the school's teachers or management may indicate serious problems in a school.

If you have any doubts about the school quality in your target neighborhoods, please give me a call and I’ll be happy to discuss them with you. Learning about local schools helps you make an informed choice about where you live
