Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include:
www.crimereports.com

www.familywatchdog.us/

www.neighborhoodscout.com

www.greatschools.org/

What are the good High Schools in Atlanta?

Defining a "good" high school by the metric that the students of the school get accepted to good Colleges for higher education, my submission to you: definitely consider including Johns Creek, GA to your list of to-look-for-home places - the kids from the community we live in (The Gates at Johns Creek) go to the following 3 awesome schools:
1) Shakerag Elementary
2) River Trail Middle
3) Northview High

Good luck!

Paul,

If you are asking about Connally Elementary School, it is not. Follow the link below to Atlanta Public School's locator tool to find out which schools it is zoned for.

Rodney Mason answered:
I do not suggest doing lease purchases. There are simply way too many things that can go wrong with one from either side.

In order to do true owner financing, the owner must own the property free and clear of any mortgages. Very few sellers are going to be in that position.

If the property currently has a mortgage on it, the owner cannot legally transfer the title to a buyer without the mortgage first being paid in full. Most all mortgage loans have a due on sale clause. This due on sale clause requires that the mortgage be paid in full should a title transfer occur.

The buyer is also at great risk on a lease purchase transaction should the seller quit making their mortgage payments. Right now, many sellers cannot afford to make their mortgage payments or simply chose not to continue making them. I have seen where the buyer is making their rent payment, but then the owner is not paying the mortgage. The next thing the buyer knows is that the home is in foreclosure. That means the buyer will generally not get back any of the money they have given as earnest money or security deposits.

It is also a big risk on the buyer. If your credit is not where it needs to be now, there is no possible way of you knowing it will be acceptable in a set amount of time.

Before entering into any type of agreement like that, the buyer needs to make sure that they fully understand the potential pitfalls that could arise. Should the seller default on the mortgage, the buyer could lose ALL of the money that they have invested. Until you are able to purchase, renting is generally the safer option.

Sherrie Crow answered:
Your neighborhood school must provide appropriate services for your child-- or provide a bus to a school with the educational program that he or she needs.

Your first step would be to make an appointment with the principal of your assigned school.

It is federal LAW that your child get an appropriate education so that he or she can advance to the highest potential. You and your child have clear rights.

There are also private schools that focus on various disabilities. Parents pay for private schools out of pocket, of course.
