How important is a school district???

I often here that buyers want to be in a certain school district.

I always ask what the reason is for their choice.

I am told many reasons...

Football program

Hockey program

other sports.



I almost never hear...Academics program.

Availability of college courses  while in high school.

Extra curricular studies  program like the debate team, or

other activities that will be a great learning or the future.


Sadly it seems that school is going the way of the general population in that SPORTS is the most important thing in life.

This thought is often the catalyst of a big heart break.


So, what is important to you...

A school with great academics or sports?

Is your agent competent? Did you go with the first agent you talked to when you saw their listing? Did you ask friends and co-workers about this or any other agent? Just because the agent is new does not make them in-competent. Just because the… more
