Not sure where you are getting your information. I taught in public school for 5 years. This isn't true.

They can and do because of the market. If you resent people selling homes that don't meet your standards for a price to which you object, why would you even consider such a home? Why resent people for wanting to profit from selling property? That's the basic tenet of capitalism.

It seems that too many people want something for nothing. People who didn't get in over their heads when they bought and now want to sell have a right to want a return on their investment. Few people want to be a charity for the homeless.

People who bought low 20+ years ago can now sell high because transplant buyers overtook the market and drove the prices up since then. Now that there's a shortage of houses in Charlotte, people are selling them for prices that the market can bear.

Not many homes in Charlotte in desirable neighborhoods stay on the market for many months.

Just because you're a prude doesn't mean everyone else has to be.

Another idea, if schools are a concern, why not settle for a less than perfect school district and send the child to a private school? If schools are soo important, frankly all public schools suck, kid can learn more on youtube than the mis-education of public schools, teaching kids modified history and how to put on a rubber and take it up the rear, or how to carve a fish in the lab to see what the guts look like... that's really gonna get them a job (sarcasm).
LOL Hot take! Such ridiculousness in this post.

Of course u would say that if u taught, teachers vary but over 12 years of education kids deal with several bad ones.
