Schools Rule

When parents are shopping for a new home, there are two important factors regarding schools:

  1. The quality of the school district; and
  2. Proximity of the home to the school

The infographic below is provided by ZipLogix and shares some interesting insight into the importance of schools and home ownership.

That's the reason we moved to Irvine, Nathan.  The Irvine Unified School District is amongst the best in the Nation.

I hear the comment, "I don't have kids, so the schools don't matter", Nathan Gesner.  When it comes to property values and real estate, that is so shortsighted.  Schools matter and loom large in the re-sale value of a home.  Buyers need to know and understand that ...

Great info,

Gene

Hi Nathan Gesner, this is a very important topic to cover, home buyers with children almost always want to know about the schools before committing.

Thank you Nathan Gesner for providing the info-graphic - I have clients that have been waiting for months to purchase a home since they are very specific and only want one particular school district!

This is great information and often times the quality of the school drives parents with the decision of where to move.

Yes, our buyers with school-age children are very concerned with the school districts and their ratings~
