Thinking of Switching to a Different School District? Now is the Time to Buy!

Prospective buyers have many things to consider when buying a home. While it’s important to think about home size and amenities, nothing matters quite as much as location. After all, the location of your home has a profound impact on the way you live.

For homebuyers with school-aged children, it’s important to research local school districts before purchasing a home. Even homebuyers that don’t have any children can benefit from considering this important, but often overlooked, factor.  The quality of the school district can have a significant impact on both home value and neighborhood.

Good School District = Good Neighborhood

Typically, a good school district equals a good neighborhood. Housing communities located close to good school districts usually have easy access to transportation, eateries, and entertainment. Homes in good school districts also tend to have higher home values and hold their value even in tough economic times.

Evaluating a School District

Multiple factors go into determining the quality of a school district. These factors include the age of the schools, condition of their facilities, student-to-teacher ratios, and standardized test scores. Fortunately, prospective buyers can find this information as well as school ratings by doing a quick search on the Internet.

Homebuyers Need to Act Fast

Families considering buying a home need to act fast if they want their children to start at their new school this fall. The home buying process takes time, and buyers will face stiff competition the longer they wait. It’s important that homebuyers begin the home buying process now.

Many people mistakenly believe they have to settle for a smaller or older home in order to get their kids into a good school district. While it’s true that many excellent school districts have established neighborhoods, homebuyers can often find newer, more spacious homes close to good schools.

Homebuyers with school-aged children could benefit from purchasing a new home in a planned community. In addition to fantastic location, these communities offer homes planned and built for families and access to state-of-the-art amenities.
