is buying a home in-front of an elementary school is bad or good ? The school was built in year 2009

Answer

Some schools are built as Community Recreation areas and living near them is like living near a neighborhood park. If you have kids, that's a great location. Inner city schools can sometimes hurt the property around them if the kids are hanging out around the school and causing problems. The best way to gauge how a school is going to impact the neighborhood is to go buy during both the morning and afternoon bell. Is it chaos? Or orderly?What is on the playground? Can you access the playground on the weekends? We live near a high school with a really nice track that they keep open to the public and we like to go up and walk the track.
