Buyers’ checklists of must-haves include a lot of specifics, many that probably wouldn’t surprise you. Square footage. Number of bedrooms. Size of closets. Updated kitchen. When buyers consider a listing, this is typically what most look at first.
But have you thought about the schools in your area? Whether you’re looking for a home or getting ready to list, you should probably consider the local school district! In fact, 19% of home buyers have said that their dream home is in a top school district. For buyers with children under 18, that number jumps up to 35%!
For buyers, whether you have school-aged children or not, keeping an eye on the quality of schools in your area is actually an investment in the future. Good schools mean a high quality education for your growing family, but also, should you become a seller in the future, your home will sell faster!
For sellers, knowing what the schools in your area are ranked is great information to have. Better rated schools mean your home retains it value longer and will sell faster. In fact, good school districts have made it into the top 10 of most buyer’s “Must Have” lists. That translates into buyers willing to pay more if they think your home is perfect for them.
