In this week’s podcast we take a look at the  close relationship between local school districts and home values.   Buyers often cite school districts or boundaries as one of the most important factors in determining where they want to buy a home and 20% of buyers are willing to give up a feature such as a bedroom to get a home in their preferred school district.   We will discuss why schools matter whether you are buying, selling or a current homeowner with no plans to move soon and how you can support your local schools to help your property values.
