What a great point Gina makes here! I didn't think about schools when we bought our first house even though we did eventually have kids there. When we moved to Missouri, it was my top priority. Such great points here and I think she did an awesome job of mentioning things we don't often think about.
Why You SHOULD Care about the School System Even When Moving WITHOUT KIDS
Its not uncommon for buyers moving without kids to not worry about the school system but the reality is that there are reasons why you should care about the school system even when moving without kids.
For starters, are kids in your future? Maybe you don't have kids today but if kids are in your future, the school system will then be important. Maybe your intention would be to sell in a few years prior to your kids attending school but keep in mind, circumstances can change and you may be faced with school aged children but unable to make a move at that time.
Good communities begin with their school system. Many desirable and sought over areas to live in are those with good school systems. Unfortunately if the school system is compromised, not only do the school and students suffer, but the community suffers as a whole, and house values may start to decline.
To protect the value of your home, you must protect the school system. Many homes for sale in towns with top ranked schools have higher price tags. The schools do matter whether you have children or not. Good school systems will protect the value of your home.
You should care about the school system even when moving without children because the school system can be a vital part in determining the current and future value of your home.
