People looking to buy real estate have so many factors to consider: whether to buy a house, townhouse, or condo; what kind of parks are in an area; what the commute to work will be like. Those with children or those planning to have children have a whole different element to consider: what are the schools like in an area?
For some parents, concern over their children’s academic prospects is a defining factor in the search for a home. Many families as well as couples planning to expand theirs start by examining school districts in a prospective area, then narrowing their search down to homes around specific schools.
