There are so many things involved in moving into a new Sacramento home in a different neighborhood that it can be easy to forget about the proximity of many nearby amenities. However, if you have children, the local schools available can make-or-break the decision on whether or not to invest in a house. If you're wondering how you can find out more about the local school, let the following tips be your guide.

 

 

Take a Web-Search to SchoolMatch.com

 

One of the benefits of so many things being online these days is that local schools are no exception, and SchoolMatch.com is a great resource that puts this information at your fingertips. While you'll have to pay a fee to get the details on many public and private institutions, this resource features ratings on schools throughout the country which can make it worth the price.

 

Contact the NAEYC

 

With a wealth of information on preschools, kindergartens and elementary schools located throughout the country, the National Association for the Education of Young Children is another helpful website to visit. While the organization offers informational pamphlets that can help you decide a school's benefits, you can also call in if you want to speak with someone directly about a particular institution.

 

Make a Visit to the Neighborhood

 

While it can take a lot of time to visit the schools in the neighborhood you're considering, this is a great way for you to get a sense of the area you're moving to and what it affords. By taking a walk through the hallways to view the building's upkeep and even visiting the office to talk with the Principal, you'll be able to decide whether it's a good fit.

 

Talk To an Agent

 

It might seem a bit strange to talk to a realtor about local schools, but real estate agents are responsible for providing a multitude of information to potential homebuyers so they have to be in the know. Whether they're able to help you with a house or not, it's certain they'll have some of the basic details about your neighborhood's educational offerings, whether it's good or bad.

 

There are a variety of amenities that can improve the appeal of a new neighborhood, but good schools are a necessity when it comes to the kids. If you're currently searching for schools and are interested in local neighborhoods, you may want to contact one of our real estate professionals for more information.
