Even if you don't use a realtor, you're an idiot if you don't put your home online when trying to sell it. That's how most people search these days.
No, its not how most real buyers search these days. Buying a house online is the dumbest thing you can do!

Well, they're not online, that's for sure. And If they aren't online, then they don't exist in the eyes of most buyers.
You did, loser. "If they aren't online...don't exist in the eyes of most buyers."

Well, is it just a bunch of sellers just putting their houses up for nothing?

You're an idiot. I said that's how people find houses, not buy them.

Don't bother, the guy is insane. There's no point in arguing with someone unstable. You have to ignore it. Like ten ppl have already jumped down his throat and he still goes on and on with his stupidity. He probably thinks its one person changing names because thats what he does. Reality is that many pple have called him out for being just like Tedder, if he isn't Tedder, but it does no good. Don't waste your time or thoughts.

There are no houses online. Pictures and prices, maybe. But nobody buys a house without looking at it. You'll never find what you want online. You'll be sorely disappointed.

Seriously? Everyone looks online when it comes to real-estate. Its a quick, easy, practical way to COMPARE prices of land and sq. footage in different areas or different towns or even different states. What kind of idiot thinks that looking at homes online doesn't make sense? My gosh the stupidity of some people in this town. You bring anything up about one of El Dorado's downfalls and they will argue to the death that you are wrong no matter what the evidence.

Example: Real estate too high here? "Well then you must be looking online and everything online is wrong and nobody looks online at houses anyway."

Wtf?

<quoted text> EHS test scores above the national average? That is an outright lie. I want you to provide a link with proof because just last year the local paper released the information that EHS had trouble keeping up to national standards and that the problem needed to be addressed. There were also a lot of excuses as to why the numbers were "wrong" and "misinterpreted". I agree with the poster above about the minority problem as well. You can hardly find a school in the nation that excels with a high minority rate. Sadly, Parkers Chapel is arguably a better school than EHS when it comes to academic stats. We have three kids. My sister lives outside of Dallas and has two. One of my kids and one of hers are in the same grade, and her daughter's curriculum is much more difficult than what my son's is. We practically tutor him at home so he has an advantage over his classmates, something I've had conversations about with many other EHS parents that do the same. Having him in AP courses help a lot, and I'm sure our AP kids score as high as any in the nation. My oldest is at Fayetteville and we are extremely proud of her, but unfortunately she was rejected from the three ivy league schools she applied to. She's very smart and makes great grades at UofA but was just short of the requirements for her top three Ivy choices. Going Ivy League is not only hard to do but a major accomplishment. I must say that you seem a bit in denial about the realities of the El Dorado educational system and it has messed with your judgement. You seem so intelligent. Are you really one of "those" people that won't admit to any of El Dorado's legitimate and very real problems? You know, when people ignore a problem or make excuses for it, that problem will never be solved. Many of us parents here in El Dorado work very hard to fight against those of you who refuse to acknowledge the problems in our educational system, and because of this we have a much harder time getting things improved.
I will have to disagree with you on several point's you make. 1st, PC being better academically. Thats not true at all. EHS offers more curriculum than any Union County School, 2 times as many AP courses.Lets compare apples to apples if you will. The % of minorities at each school is quite a bit of difference and ElDorado has 4700 kid's in school whereas PC has maybe 250 total? Minorities make up 54% of the grades whereas PC has a make up of less than 2%. EHS has to also count special ed population as part of the test scores. Those are what drives the test scores down and makes PC's look better. If you go look at overall scores you will see that the 46th ranked student at EHS has a higher GPA score than the Valedictorian of PC. When the News_Times hands out the Scholar Athlete award, look at the GPA of the EHS kids compared to the other. Most are 4.5 and higher and none have been valdictorian whereas PC's scholar athlete wasnt near as high. So dont say PC has a better education system without comparing all avenues. I agree they have a great school system and will match scores with most all other schools that have a high percentage of white students.My kid's have all taken AP courses and it has allowed them to do far better in College than kid's from local schools that dont take AP Courses becuse typically thats what AP courses are for, getting kid's ready for the rigor's of college. Most of your county school students have to take remedial courses in some subjects because thay werent prepared for college studying or the college curriculum.

Actually, PC has been recognized several times in the state for academics. When compared to other schools of its size across the state, it does very well. EHS has a lot more to offer in my opinion but you don't see them recognized for academics at all. If you aren't in AP classes at EHS, you are getting a sub-par education. Not my opinion. There are factual statistics that support EHS's academic problems year after year. Still, if I had kids I would send them to EHS before I would PC. More opportunity to excel at EHS. PC has a decent standard that it will never move beyond. EHS AP courses produce excellence far above what anything PC can offer.

EHS, having more students, must offer a subpar curriculum to make graduation more obtainable. Remember "No Child Left Behind?" It does provide more of am opportunity for collegiate success.
