Don’t buy a house near a school until you’ve visited the property at both 8am and 3pm on weekday
I live across the street from a elementary school. Literally where the bus line starts lining up 30 minutes before kids get out. Its a nightmare. The other side of the school is for parent pickup and by the time kids get out there are 50 cars running down the whole road that have been lined up for just as long blocking traffic. And this is on small side street city roads. You can’t get in or out. And it’s not just buses & parking. There are hours of screaming children at lunches and recess. Imagine groups of 50 in shifts running wide open and venting like a tea pot. It’s not a place to buy if you work a 3rd shift job or want retire in quiet. And I would extend that time to 5pm. After school care & sports programs.
