Many folks list "Best Schools" as a top concern when relocating to the North Carolina Triangle area.
Different from many areas, North Carolina organizes and administers school districts at the county level. This can be confusing to people who assume they will send their kids to the school nearest their new home. Complicating matters is the rapid growth of the Wake county area. We are told that 65 people move to Wake County DAILY. Booming growth is not an easy orchestration to choreograph, and often schools are filled beyond design capacity.
When buying in Wake County, it is wise to remember this, do research with the Wake County Public School System and get them to commit to what school your kiddies will be assigned. It is frustrating to relocating families that their Realtor will avoid making a statement on school assignment, since the growth makes it too difficult to be accurate. No agent wants to be liable for a family not getting into their desired school, so the admonition, "Buyer and/or Buyer Agent to Confirm School Assignment" is standard boilerplate in listing remarks.
Fortunately, once the dust settles, the Wake County Schools are rewarding and very highly rated, in the state of North Carolina, and across the country.
