Matching Your Home Purcahse to Surrounding Calgary & Area Schools
Choosing a school for your children is a major determining factor for families looking for a new home in Calgary and the surrounding area. In many instances, it's what causes them to seek out a new home in the first place. Finding a match between Calgary and Okotoks realty and Calgary School Districts is something only a REALTOR® that places the needs of a family at the forefront of their real estate listing search can do.
Here are the basic steps you need to take before finding a school:
1. Identify the school/s that you want your children to attend. In Calgary and surrounding towns you can choose from public, Catholic or private schools. It's a good idea to consider back up alternatives just in case the school catchment doesn't suit your home buying budget or if a preferred private school is hard to gain acceptance to.
2. Decide upon the property type. Is your family willing to downsize in square footage for the sake of living within a Calgary school catchment? Or perhaps you are planning to have more children in the future and you would like them to attend the same school as their siblings, therefore requiring that you move from a condominium into a larger home. It's an important decision so think ahead and determine not only what your needs are now, but what they will likely be in the future.
3. Refer to the resources that are available to you in making the decision to buy Calgary or Okotoks real estate based on School Catchment.
