TANGLEWOOD PRIVATE SCHOOLS

TANGLEWOOD PRIVATE SCHOOLS

People relocating to Tanglewood or other Houston neighborhoods have many things on their minds. One of the most important issues regarding their move is often the private school to send their children to. As your Realtor, I will provide some direction on where to get the best information and have many contacts to share.

There are over 90 private schools in the Houston Metro area and a bunch in the Tanglewood area. One of the interesting organization in our wonderful city is the Houston Area Independent School organization. I can certainly provide contacts within this group and help provide some guidance.

Each year they hold an “Open House” fair to promote the benefits of their school. This event is open to the public: The Annual Houston Private School preview is on Sunday September 27 at the Norris Center in City Centre.

Houston Area private schools will be in one place on September 27 to meet and talk with families looking for the right school for their children. This is the perfect time to pick up information on private schools – both faith-based and non-faith based. Schools in attendance include Early Childhood to 8th grade schools, K-12 schools and High Schools from Houston and outlying areas like Katy, Cypress, Friendswood, Spring, east Houston and the Woodlands. Also in attendance will be boarding schools from across the country. Admission Directors and school representatives will be able to hand out basic information about their schools and any open house dates scheduled.

2 to 4 p.m. September 27, City Center – Norris Center – Beltway 8 and Interstate 10. Visit www.houstonprivateschools.org to learn about our Houston area private school members and to view information about the event.

HOMEOWNERS RESPONSIBILITIES

HOMEOWNERS RESPONSIBILITIES

“With great power, comes great responsibility.” – Spiderman

That’s from the famous Spiderman series, or something like that. I find myself in challenging conversations with prospects from time to time. A big part of what I do is establishing expectations. Many prospects come to me with very little concept of what they can and can not afford or where they want to purchase. I find that clients that have a solid grip on finances and geographical location, are likely to find a property that meets their needs quickly.

From today’s issue of Realty Times the article, “The Three Most Important Responsibilities Buyers Have” the author summarizes as such:

1. Financial Responsibilities

2. Neighborhood Responsibilities

3. Household Responsibilities

In short, be on solid financial footing and pay your mortgage on time, keep your house in good condition, respect your neighbors, and be wise about where and what you buy in order to meet other financial obligations and goals.
