Lee County School Choice Program - Pro or Con?

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 4,912 Views

The debate may be just starting. Commissioners, school administrators and parents are all re-evaluating the current school choice program and it would not be surprising to see changes down the road. In 2004, the court-ordered mandate for busing children to school for achieving segregation expired. Since 1998, Lee County utilized a parental selection of school choice allowing them to satisfy the mandate and eliminated the need for re-drawing boundary lines each time a new school was built....

Also, here are a few questions to ask yourself when pricing your home: ...

Foreclosures - Are you getting the best buy?

californiadon posted this 1 1,318 Views

Foreclosures: Several buyers have been asking me about the foreclosed (REO) homes and condominium opportunities in the marketplace. It seems that the more REO properties we have in the marketplace, the less attractive these opportunities are. The logic seems crazy, I know. If it were only based on the simple economic fact that the more homes in the marketplace for sale... the more downward the price pressure on the existing inventory and therefore the pricing ...except in the case that mo...

Indianapolis Real Estate - Market Report - October 2007

Indy Realtor posted this 1,030 Views

I don’t normally like to do a report just on Indianapolis real estate because I feel that it too broad of a search to get a realistic picture of what is going on in the marketplace.  However, it does provide some good overall data that can be used to compare with some more local statistics.  So, I will give the Indianapolis numbers and then follow it up broken down by townships so that we can see how the individual townships fare as compared to the overall market.  ...

Northville Real Estate Market Update In Nov, 2007

MARK Z posted this 1,151 Views

It's amazing how many times I am on a competitive listing appointment in the Northville Real Estate market, or for that matter any Michigan Real Estate market, and I pull out the market stats for that area and the seller has never seen them before.  For whatever reason, most agents know nothing about their market statistics.  My question is how can a sales professional properly price a property without knowing in which direction the market is heading?  How can you price a p...

Fishers Residents - Answer Your Door

Indy Realtor posted this 994 Views

Due to Fisher’s population boom, the town of Fishers has ordered a special census to count every single resident in the city.  For the second time since 2000, Fishers thinks it needs to recount the population in order to capture a higher percentage of the state taxes.  The higher the population is, the more Fishers gets in state taxes; if their estimates are correct they think the population has risen to 62,000 which would mean an additional $1.2 per year in state taxes.&nbsp...
