It's almost back-to-school time! Have your kids started the new year yet? This is the time in the real estate world when activity slows down a bit as home buyers with school-age kids are getting ready for classes. Are your kids ready? Are you? 

We've put together a list of some back-to-school tips that will help the whole family to get back into the swing of the school year:

  • Enroll your kids in an after-school program to keep them active and safe. SACC or the YMCA are great options. 
  • Organize school assignments with apps like iHomework or MyHomeWork.
  • Know where everyone is by making a family calendar.
  • Set up a homework area. Remove TVs, computers, video games and other distractions.
  • Set bedtimes and wake-up times. Think about enforcing them even on weekends.
  • Create an area for kids to leave things that need your attention, like permission slips.

If you do happen to be shopping around for homes and you have kids still in school, the Rochester Realty Edge Team's website (and app for your smartphone) shows which schools are near the homes you are searching for. 

If you're ready to buy a new house in a new school district, or ready to sell your own home, call the Realty Edge Team! Contact the Realty Edge Team at 507-722-1107 or at  Find us on Facebook!
