PERCENT OF HOMEBUYERS SURVEYED SAID SCHOOL DISTRICT BOUNDARIES ARE “IMPORTANT” OR “SOMEWHAT IMPORTANT.” Source: July 2013 REALTOR.com survey

Here are a few of the sites that provide detailed information on schools:

> greatschools.org

This very popular schools website lets you input a school name and see test scores, course offerings and parent/student reviews. The site also allows you to plug in an address to see all the schools nearby...handy if the district allows open enrollment.

> education.com/schoolfinder Similar to greatschools.org, this site allows you to plug in a school and see test scores, as well as how it compares to other schools in the district and the state overall. It also provides boundary maps for each school.

> publicschoolreview.com > privateschoolreview.com Plug in a home’s address, and see all the public or private schools nearby. Each listing provides a trove of school population data, but no test scores.

Join Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research Sunday, May 4th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Annual Open House. Take a tour of the wild bird clinic and a peek at baby birds in the nursery. Exhibitors will be on hand and food and merchandise will be available for purchase. Thanks to the support of sponsors, admission is FREE. Tri-State will,

however, accept donations of cash and single-ply toilet paper.

Welcome We have had good sale numbers this first quarter which is a welcome jolt to the spring market. However, inventory is still low and new listings are needed. Historically low interest rates will motivate sellers to put their homes on the market. Home sales is a situation of supply and demand. Right now demand is up and supply is down. Typically this situation means we are headed for a sellers market...need a couple more quarters to tell for sure. Once the foliage comes in and the pools are open, we anticipate an active market. Sellers who have been on the sidelines should move into the market. Enjoy the issue! Jay
