Unwavering Commitment to Service, Unsurpassed Results
I realize this question was asked MONTHS ago, but I'm curious.
Why does the idea of working with a Realtor concern you? You realize the homes you find, will be listed by a Realtor? One that is working FOR the SELLER!
The seller pays the Realtors through the proceeds of the sale. BUYERS should soak up assistance from a Realtor, it really is in their best interest....and yours too!
Looking for FSBO-For Sale by Owner? Can't even start with the pitfalls that may occur through this process without someone representing you.
I realize some of us can come off pretty strong. The key is finding one that you can work with... that works well with you.
I don't consider myself a "High Pressure Sales Person" so if you need information, I would be glad to help. Feel free to call on me if you are still in need of assistance. I would love to know why Realtor's have no value in your search for a home?

You can usually find out what the school district boundaries are by either going to the district main offices, or looking online at the district maps. Be very careful not to make a mistake on this, and ask the owners of the home what district they are in as well. You can also confirm by taking the home address to the school district to make sure it's in the one you want.
Here are reasons why it pays to work with a real estate agent...
Youâ€™ll have an expert to guide you through the process. Buying or selling a home usually requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multi-page settlement statements. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes.
Get objective information and opinions. Real estate agents can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. Theyâ€™ll also be able to provide objective information about each property. A professional will be able to help you answer these two important questions: Will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?
Find the best property out there. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
Benefit from their negotiating experience. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession, and inclusion or exclusion of repairs, furnishings, or equipment. In addition, the purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.
Property marketing power. Real estate doesnâ€™t sell due to advertising alone. In fact, a large share of real estate sales comes as the result of a practitionerâ€™s contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, and family. When a property is marketed with the help of a real estate agent, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your agent will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
Real estate has its own language. If you donâ€™t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why itâ€™s important to work with a professional who is immersed in the industry and knows the real estate language.
Real estate agents have done it before. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if youâ€™ve done it before, laws and regulations change. Real estate agents, on the other hand, handle hundreds of real estate transactions over the course of their career. Having an expert on your side is critical.
Buying and selling is emotional. A home often symbolizes family, rest, and security â€” itâ€™s not just four walls and a roof. Because of this, home buying and selling can be an emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest purchase theyâ€™ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on both the emotional and financial issues most important to you.
To find homes "belonging" to a certain school....
1) At the top of the page, under â€œHomeâ€, hold your mouse over "Home Finder" and then select "Find Home in School Boundary".
2) Click on the "Select a School" which will provide a pop-up window to enter the school name. As you type it will start to show you school names until you select one of the schools. Once you find and select your school click OK.
3) Review the resulting map and hover over the house icons to read quick information about the hose; or, click the icon to proceed to more detailed information.
Be aware that the listing data is not completely comprehensive; however, you can always find the attendance schools of a single property address just by typing it into the "Find School By Address" box.
Also, before making an offer you should call the School District to CONFIRM the schools the property will feed to!
1) Call the school district to obtain accurate information on thier boundaries.
2) Call a Realtor to have them set up a search specific to that boundary.
The reality is, a Realtor has the most accurate information on available homes. Web sites are limited, may not show the correct status and update times are slow. In addition, yard signs remain up even though the home is pending and a few days after being sold.
Ultimately, if you don't want to waist time, you'll need to include a Realtor. We can send you available homes via email without showing you.
I hope this helps,

That is probably the best way that you can find a home in the Sylvan school district. In fact I already have a search set up for that district. I can customize it a bit for you and give you access?
Keep in mind in this market houses sell VERY quickly. You need to be able to see and offer on the home toward the very beginning of the time it comes on the market- or else you might lose your chance. There arent enough homes available these days so it can get a bit competitive.
Email me and I can get you set up :) Have a great rest of the week!
