Schools Rule!

ZipLogix offered this “infographic” for use–click to view a larger image… As someone with a deep interest and connection to schools, I did find it interesting. One question I find myself asking is “How do those parents who consider school quality important judge it?” Numbers (ranking is mentioned) do not tell the whole story! Licensees might consider what the terms “reasonable care,” and “due diligence” mean when a buyer client asks about the local school system. While unrelated to real estate, I recently had someone accompany me on a tour of our elementary school. Several things impressed her, including the fact that our students are quite polite, often holding doors open for us and greeting us pleasantly.

Touring schools may not be practical, but those practicing buyer agency may want to consider developing some resources and information beyond the standard ranking reports. At a minimum, we might “be the source of the source” by sharing meaningful contacts. Most schools have support groups run by parents: music boosters, sports boosters, or what used to be called PTA (Parent Teacher Association) or PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). Would it make sense to know some of those folks and introduce a prospective buyer?

Lots to think about here…
