Did you know that, according to a recent survey, 78% of buyers said that schools were very important to their home search? It’s true, and today we’re going to talk about how to search for homes based on their school district.

A majority of our buyers decide where they want to purchase a home based on schools, and the stats back that up. It makes a lot of sense because we all know how important location is to homebuyers, especially those with children.

“I can connect you with people who actually live in the areas you’re looking at.”

In the study I mentioned earlier, 17% of buyers were also willing to give up having an updated kitchen, a garage, or an extra bedroom just to be in the right school district. Here in Los Angeles and throughout the state, there are a few great resources you can use to compare and contrast school districts for yourself.

A couple of them are greatschools.org and niche.com. They both operate very similarly to Yelp! They have reviews, user scores, and a ton of data. I highly recommend checking these sites out if you’re in the market to buy a home in a certain school or neighborhood. 

I also recommend reaching out to me. I can connect you with people who actually live in the areas that you’re interested in so you can learn more about what the area and the schools are actually like from a primary source.

If you have any questions for me in the meantime, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
