School Districts and Your Home Search
School districts are a major consideration in any home search as confirmed by a 2013 Realtor.com® survey of nearly 1,000 prospective home buyers.
Consumers are willing to sacrifice certain things to live in the right school district with some of the realtor.com survey results quite surprising:
- One out of five buyers would give up a bedroom or a garage for a better school.
- One out of three would purchase a smaller home to wind up in the right district.
Buyers are also willing to put their money where their mouths are.
- One out of five home buyers said they would pay six to 10 percent above their budget for the right school.
- One out of 10 would double that to 20 percent.
