We have children that have attended Lakeland Elementary for the past 6 years and have nothing but great things to say about the school staff and volunteers. Our two oldest just finished the 5th grade and we have another child going into the 3rd grade this fall. The teachers have been awesome!

the two older boys are starting Arlington Middle this Fall and we have heard great feedback on that school as well.

There are several private schools with a 15 minute drive, but none in Lakeland so far.

There is no set formula, however if you enlist an agent that is familiar with the area and the REO company or bank - they can help you with that company's MO (mode of operendous). For instance, there is one company that is notorious for putting a listing price up and then they will reduce it every 14 days. Another one works strictly off of "net proceeds". Yet another one is famous for holding the price for as long as 3 months before becoming negotiable, but will discount hugely if you buy in a block (several listings at once).

Lakeland is not a hard area to sell even at retail pricing. They have the most sought after public school system in Shelby County, no city tax and newer homes - which make it very desirable to many people.
After you turn to a good Realtor for the statistic and representational part - then figure out what you are comfortable with, Then put the offer in - you will never know until you actually play ball - arm chair quarterbacks are just that........

Happy home buying!
