Researching The Schools In Chandler

Researching The Schools In Chandler

School is starting (if it hasn’t already started for you) and if you’re anything like me, I’m looking forward to it.  Yes, I am a schedule junky and the few weeks during the summer when I don’t have a schedule exhaust and stress me out!  School is a good thing.

So if you have school aged children, picking a school is usually a big part of picking the house as well.  So let’s talk a few minutes about how you can go about picking a school and an area for your new house if you have children and the schools are important to you. 

Thank goodness for the internet!  There is so much great information there.  My favorite website for checking out schools is www.greatschools.org/.  Enter in the state you’re looking in and you can then narrow it down by state, school, etc.  On the listing you are looking at, the schools for the area should be listed and so you can just start by plugging those in and seeing what their ratings and their test scores are. 

If you prefer to look at the schools first, start with looking up the schools in the city that you are considering there and then work it backwards into the neighborhoods that attend that school.  You can narrow it down that way too.

I am also a big proponent of talking to people.  I think you can get your best and most honest information from the people in the area – maybe not the immediate area, but the surrounding areas.  They don’t seem to have much of a vested interested, so the feedback is pretty honest.  So don’t be afraid to meet some of your potential neighbors and ask your questions. 

For me and for many of my clients, schools are important.  Before you place an offer is a great time to do some research, but if you can’t get all the information you want before you put in the offer, be sure you make the time to do it during your inspection period.  Talk to you agent about what the inspection period is all about and how you can back out on a transaction should your inspections turn out something about the house or area that will not meet your needs. 

Best of luck in your home search.  If we here at Your Red Door Team can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
