Buying Near a School

After weeks or even months of searching you’ve found the home you love. The trouble is – it’s located next to or near a school, and you’re wondering what that might mean down the line. Is buying near a school a good idea, or could it be inviting trouble? Here are the pros and cons you should weigh when deciding whether or not to buy a home near a school.

Pros of buying near a school

One of the biggest perks of buying near a school is the boost to your property value. But be aware that in order to get that extra value, it needs to be a high-performing school. Other advantages of living in close proximity to a school include:

  • Being within walking distance: If you have kids in school, it can be a huge plus if they live close enough to the school to walk. It’s comforting to know that they are close by, and it can make mornings less hectic knowing you don’t have to battle traffic to get there.
  • Having access to school amenities: Do you like to run or play sports? Living near a school often means having access to running tracks or sports fields. Many schools allow members of the community to use these facilities before and after school.
  • Living in a safer neighborhood: In general, the areas around schools tend to be safer. They are more likely to have regular police patrols and crossing guards for busy streets.

Cons of buying near a school

When considering the disadvantages of living near a school, the type of school matters. An elementary school generally causes less of a disturbance than a middle or high school. Older students are more likely to cause trouble, vandalize property or loiter. Other cons to think about include:

  • Traffic: The number of cars and busses passing through the neighborhood at the beginning and end of the school day can increase dramatically. More traffic can also cause more traffic noise, like the sound of idling cars and busses.
  • Parking: More traffic means more parking-related issues. Once the school parking lot is full, parents will be parking on the street, which could impact the parking situation in front of your home.
  • Limited number of potential buyers: When it comes time to sell your home, you may find that there are fewer buyers interested in purchasing a home near a school.
  • Noise: In addition to increased traffic noise, you will likely also hear other noises from the school. This could include school bells, football games and even band practice.

The bottom line

Ultimately, the choice is yours when it comes to buying next to or near a school. To get a clear picture of how the school might affect your daily life, you should visit at different times of day. Notice what it’s like on a Monday morning compared to a Friday afternoon. Research crime statistics and see if more acts of vandalism are reported during the school year. Talk to neighbors to get their thoughts about living near a school. In the end, you can feel good about your decision once you know all the important information.

My Studio Clock has been annoying me...let’s just say it wasn’t the right colour 💙Now (when we get out of this) potentially every hour could be Swim O’Clock - and I intend to take FULL advantage. #lovetoswim #coldwaterswimming #cyanotype #handmadephotography #upcycle #reuse #bluelove

Sabe aquele livro que parece ter sido lido por todo mundo, menos você? Era meu caso com Jane Eyre, sempre ouvi o quanto é uma personagem forte e à frente do seu tempo.
Desde a tenra idade ela precisou se bastar, pois órfã de pai e mãe, fora criada por uma tia até ser enviada à um orfanato onde adquire a formação de professora, aos dezoito anos decide ampliar os horizontes, e então, por meio de um anúncio de jornal arranja um emprego de preceptora na residência do Sr. Rochester, um homem com quase quarenta anos.
De uma maneira improvável Jane e seu patrão se apaixonam e iniciam uma relação tanto questionável, digo isso porque ele é uma pessoa contraditória e pouco confiável, além de ter um comportamento quase irresponsável, pois guarda um segredo que irá mudar a vida de todos que o cerca, durante esse período de flerte, digamos assim, permaneci com a sensação que ele a enganava. Fato é que eles fazem planos, mas o destino não se harmoniza com o desejo de ambos, e Jane acaba por viver outros infortúnios.
Charlotte Bronte criou uma narrativa, extremamente sedutora, mantém o leitor interessado (li cinquenta páginas sem perceber), os diálogos são relevantes e os personagens marcantes, mas o amor de Jane e Sr. Rochester não me convenceu, eu não fiquei contente por ela encontrar esse homem e nem por seu desenlace, além de um acontecimento quase no final do livro que me pareceu bem forçado. As escolhas dela em determinadas situações é outro ponto que me incomodou um pouco, mas não vejo isso como um demérito, pois faz parte do crescimento da personagem, além disso atribuo à sua pouca idade e vivência.
É uma leitura única, me perguntei o motivo de não ter lido antes, adorei Jane e a forma como ela sempre enfrentou seus problemas, e se você tem a mesma sensação que eu tinha, saiba que ela é mesmo uma personagem especial.

Here is another of my series of silk screens on ply..talking about wayfinding, placemaking and community. This one is called Lido and shows a retreating tide leaving a nice freshly filled pool of sun warmed water stranded on the plywood beach.

I’ve written a series of anecdotes which inspired these prints (hopefully an ongoing series). This one is about how a place can become part of your life-story through the memories it holds. I imagine a women in her seventies looking down at this place and remembering her parents there, her teenaged friends, her first lover, her children and her grandchildren…
If the beach is right tidal pools like this, are comparatively cheap to maintain and can be used for free by everyone.

When I was teenager holidaying in Devon we used to go to a beautiful deep rockpool which we called the diving pool, it could only be reached at low tide and was magical. I have never lived near a tidal lido but if you have I would love to hear your stories..

This print will be shown at my exhibition ‘Decorative Minimalist’ at Yorkshire Sculpture Park from 27th March until 27th June.. .

jubileepool is the largest sea water pool in the UK. It originally opened in 1935 and contains over 5 million litres of water. The triangular design is to cope when the storm roll in from the sea and the temperature is usually just 1 or 2 degrees Celsius above the temperature of the sea. 💧Fancy a dip? 💦
