School Location Still Key for Home Buyers

You may want to share more information with your clients about the school options near your listings. Buyers say it’s critical to their decision-making.

More than 75 percent of parents say their child’s education is an important factor in their search for a new home, according to a new survey conducted by Bank of America of 1,000 home buyers. Of those, 53 percent say they would buy a new home in a specific neighborhood to get their child into a better school.

Sixty-four percent of parents say that knowing the quality or ranking of nearby schools is extremely important to them before purchasing a new home; also, 37 percent of parents say the school’s extracurricular reputation is also important in their decision.

Not only is the quality of the schools important to them, but so is the timing of being able to move. More than a quarter of parents say they plan to move to a new home during school breaks.

Also, buyers polled say they want to live near the school. Thirty-four percent of parents surveyed say close distance to the school is "extremely important" to them. What’s more, 22 percent say the ability for their children to walk to school is very important as well.

Five Fall Home Improvement Tips

Sure, it's still hot out there, but this is the perfect time to think about preparing your home for the colder months ahead. Here are five home improvement ideas to get you started.

1. Windows and door replacement 
Based on the age of your windows and doors, consider replacing as many as you can afford for the highest energy efficiency benefit.

2. Fireplace and chimney inspection and cleaning 
Make sure both are working properly before you need to use them.

3. Attic and ceiling insulation 
Use foam insulation to seal the gaps under your regular insulation. Be safe when handling these products.

4. Gutter cleaning and replacement
Gutters that are not working properly can cause interior damage.

5. Roof repair and replacements 
Inspect and repair the roof to keep trouble spots from becoming an issue during the winter months. Consider hiring a roof contractor to do this for you.

September 11th: Patriot Day

Held in memory of nearly 3,000 people who died during terrorist attacks in New York, Washington DC and Shanksville, PA.

TIP: The flag should be flown at half-mast as a mark of respect to those who died on September 11, 2001.

If "Septem" Means "Seven", Why is September Our Ninth Month?

September comes from the Latin root septem, meaning "seven". In the original Roman republican calendar, September was the seventh month of the year rather than the ninth. The Roman calendar was only ten months long and included the following months—Martius, Aprilis, Maius, Junius, Quintilis, Sextilis, September, October, November, and December.

It was not until 45 BC when Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar (named after Caesar, himself) that the year grew to include two more months, January and February. Quintilis and Sextilis were later renamed to July and August in honor of Julius Caesar and Augustus Caesar.

1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil

4 slices cheddar cheese

4 hamburger buns

Ketchup, mustard and/or mayonnaise, for spreading (optional)
