You asked and they answered! Here are our some of our top realtors’ takes on homes in good school districts.
You’re on the hunt for a new house in the perfect location.
You’re probably thinking “I don’t have kids, so why would I need to look at school districts?”
Well, we decided to ask our realtors to hear their input- in 140 characters or less.
@tashekiagray: “Yes, I think buying a house in a good district tells a lot about a neighborhood and the buyer may have kids in the future so it should be taken into consideration. If the school district is good the neighborhood is usually good as well.”
@johnnelson: ” Yes you should! The neighborhood should be safe and being near a school keeps the house very “sellable” in the future…”
@mindikessenich: “Location is one of the most important considerations when buying a home. School districts are one of many deciding factors, but if it does not apply to you or your current situation, I wouldn’t recommend allowing it to have too much weight. There are some highly desirable locations in our area, for example, with lower school ratings. They still appeal to another demographic.”
@mindyhonish: “Yes! A good school district can bring good resale value to the home! The better the district, the better demand for housing.”
