Yup it's one of the many tools he can use and he wasn't even aware it was available. Since he's spending a lot of money I want him to consider all possible things that can impact his investment. Some realtors avoid school catchment in detail because they are afraid of potentially offending their client or putting them off an area.strike66 wrote: ↑ No, he won't miss out on anything by avoiding the low ranking schools but that isn't a catch all to determine what's a good area to live in or not. As another poster mentioned, Killarney is the lowest ranking but yet it is quite a nice area to live in. Instead of using school rankings, I would recommend talking to a knowledgeable realtor who knows the lower mainland.
JO has been historically ranked "lower" but who knows what it's truly like now. Sure if you want to avoid Indians you prob want to avoid the Fraser area where JO is.
Your comment on Indians and JO is a perfect example. He needs to see it here because some realtors might not be honest with him.
