School District Quality for Prospective Home Buyers
The quality of the local school district is one of the most important factors influencing neighborhood choice among home buyers, according to a recent report from the National Association of Realtors. This factor is especially important to prospective home buyers ages 38 to 52.
Student achievement, class size, funding, and the variety and quality of educational programs and extracurricular activities vary by school district, as do property tax rates. Because of these factors, the value of a home is heavily influenced by the school district it falls within.
As a result, ATTOM School District Boundaries are critical to homeowners, prospective home buyers, investors, and real estate professionals, and are a vital component of real estate search.
