Hi Sean,

I'm an independent broker who is not constrained by the typical big box real estate structure. I've got the flexibility to get deal done that other agents can't get past their own broker.

Give me a call and lets see how we can do business.

Living in the proximity of any school becomes an issue only if you allow it to. Yes, as you have pointed out, there may be school noises and traffic issues but these can be anticipated and/or minor in nature.

On the positive side, you will benefit from a higher police presence, use of the outdoor facilities, and community school programs & activities. In the real estate business, when buyers with children are looking for an ideal home they often request being located near the school.

The appeal of a home in the proximity of a school will likely depend on the individual's personal needs but don't expect it to be a totally negative feature because there are buyers that will seek this location.

Best wishes with your new home,

Good questions and though I can't answer them properly, I would like to add a couple of other things to look for in purchasing investment property:
-public school zones
-proximity to major services (grocery stores, banks, etc)
-access to freeway/interstate
-low crime area

Good luck.

YOU hired the Realtor so YOU are the boss. Try asking him exactly WHY he doesn't want to return your deposit and demand a straight answer. Also, you do have some recourse for retracting your bid. Has the offer acceptance deadline passed? If so you can demand that your offer be withdrawn and your deposit be returned to you and if your realtor gives you a hard time go to his supervisor or even call Home Office if it's a large franchise.

Perhaps this link can help you:
