Find Out How Your Opinions are Represented in Washington…and Vote Accordingly!

Filed under: Real Estate News

Some days are about politics, not real estate, and today is one of those days!

When you head into the voting booth, do you wish you really knew how your vote would “count” when your elected official started “voting” on issues in Washington? Personally, I am tired of the apathetic American voter who has no idea what their Representatives in Congress are voting for, or what it will cost the future generations of Americans. 

I am going to follow the voting record of my Representative, who happens to be Kathy Castor.  I know she voted for more funding for Acorn, the organization that was recently found to be supporting illegal activities, so I will be voting AGAINST her in the 2010 election. What about you?  Do you want to know how YOUR elected officials are voting on important issues?

Check out this site on Congressional Votes  from the Washington Post…you can check the voting record on any member of Congress.  You owe it to yourself, and your fellow Americans, to hold your elected representative accountable for their voting record and if you don’t like how they vote, then VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE. 

Off my soapbox…back to Real Estate in Tampa…

How To Find The “Assigned School District” For A House in Tampa…Tampa Real Estate News.

The Latest News on the Tampa Real Estate Market, Tampa Neighborhoods and Tampa School Districts and the Best Schools in Tampa…

In Hillsborough County, the 8th Largest School District in the U.S., Teacherschool assignments are based on your home address. Florida schools are rated annually, with grades of A-F. While there are many school choices available with charter schools, magnet schools, and the International Baccalaureate programs, a house in one of the top-rated school districts, with an A rating, will have a better resale value than one in a lesser-rated district. Three of the district high schools have made the list of the Top 100 High Schools in the country. Special assignments to a specific school, outside of your assigned school, are available on a space-available basis, but every address in Tampa is assigned to a specific high school, middle school and elementary school.

It can be frustrating to determine what “school district” a particular home is located in, since too many agents neglect to include this information when a home is listed in MLS. Fortunately, the School District has a very comprehensive website. You can check the district site  to locate the school district assigned to a particular address before you make an offer. Even if you do not have any children, or are not planning to have children, the school district will affect your resale value!
