The right school
If you have young kids, buying a home near top schools is almost certainly a priority for you. But even if you don't have school-age kids, you may still want to make sure you buy a home in a neighborhood with good schools. Why? The resale value of your home may depend on it. The areas that we work Prosper, Frisco & McKinney have many schools that are rated exemplary.
There are several resources you can turn to for good information. You can find several online rankings by performing an Internet search. You can also access rating information online from the Texas Education Agency. Perhaps the best resource, though, is to talk with people who live in the area and pay personal visits to the schools in the neighborhood. Sit in on a few classes. Talk with teachers and administrators. Ask plenty of questions.
For additional information, contact the department of education in the city you are considering. You often can receive data on test scores, class size, and the percentage of children who go on to attend college.
