The Age-Old Question
We've spoken with countless people, most of whom expressed regret, that came to us seeking advice on their children's education. Most of these requests surround the fact that they have already purchased a home and are now wondering what school their children will go to. Often times, they are less than thrilled with the outcome. They ask what they can do to put their child in a better school, and unfortunately, we have to tell them – "nothing". The home you choose to live in is associated with a specific school and unless there are very special circumstances, your child(ren) will have to attend that school. The only other option they have is to move. For new homeowners, this simply isn't an option. They will have to wait to sell and move again, but this time they will be prepared.
The Buying Process – Several Steps Missing
This process begs the question: Why are new homeowners JUST finding out what school their children will be attending? And to add to that, why are they having to come to us for the answers? The reality is that most people choose their real estate agent based on afflitation. It's usually a friend's brother, an uncle's niece, or a close friend. In that moment, you are choosing the professional who will handle the process of acquiring your largest asset by sheer circumstance. Most people are unsure of what questions to ask their realtor and fixate solely on the home itself when making a decision. This can often lead to buyer's remorse as the emotional rollercoaster of purchasing a home wears off and you settle into your new home and neighbourhood. The endless questions that now pop up are left unanswered by the suddenly preoccupied realtor.
How Do I Choose My Next Home?
There are literally thousands of articles out there on this topic. However, you've come to this site for one specific reason: you truly care about the quality of education that your child receives. It's not a coincidence that the nicest and often most expensive neighbourhoods in Mississauga house the best schools. While the majority of people can't afford $1.5 million properties in Lorne Park, there are a plethora of options to choose from that are more affordable and can still give your child access to some of the best schools in Mississauga. It's up to you to do the research beforehand and consult with an agent that is going to look at you as more than a dollar sign. You need someone that will tailor a plan that suits your specific needs – both emotionally and financially.
