I received a call from a young lady who was interested in the mh I have on 1 acre in her kids school district. She rents a nice 3/2 built home, but was considering moving so she could stay in the same school district. Her landlord was going to sell the house she was in and she needs to move.
Her husband makes 45k per year installing sattelite dish, and they have 2k for a down.
Now they may not buy, but because of the “keeping the kids in their school” thing, it made a motivated buyer.
I promised my kids I would never move them unless a really weird situation came up. I have passed over some good real estate deals and even 1 job prospect not to move my kids. I understand the strength of this motivation.
However, I did threaten to leave my 10 year old son with my folks in Colorado, during vacation, with my parents.(They were camping in a large RV) He was being bad and I said, “Hey, I still wouldn’t be moving out of your school district! YOU would be out of your school district!” It was in fun.
The school district I bought this land/home deal in is the second fastest growing in the state some people tell me. I know it is in high demand.
Thanks for your input,
