Schools Are Significant to Home Buyers
Yes, schools are important to home buyers. When asked 3 out of 5 home buyers say schools are very important when considering where to buy a house. Home Buyers will pay more and give up extras in order to have their children in a good performing school. Would you pass on a pool, a bonus room or nearby parks and trails in order for your children to attend a certain school? Sometimes, even though a home buyer may not have children, they still want to live in a neighborhood that supports quality test scores of students. Good schools, good test scores typically equates to better real estate investments.

After checking the areas where the test scores are acceptable to you, just click to view homes for sale and give me a call so I can help you find just the right house in the neighborhood that suits your needs.
As a REALTOR®, I always recommend home buyers drive through a neighborhood they are considering at night and on the weekends. A neighborhood comes to life on weekends so home buyers can get a real feel for the area where the home they want may be located.
