SCHOOLED in Home Buying

September 7, 2010 | 1 Comment

When looking to buy a home, mast families put a stellar school district at the top of their list,but be careful when making this decision. People pay more to live in high-ranked school districts , although the better value may actually be a less-expensive house in a lesser-ranked district. Ranking alone does not determine quality. When you compare schools, it’s important to look at the different courses and enrichment offered. Recent research shows that the difference between the best and next-best schools is negligible. Even if you do buy in the best school district your kids may not end up there. In some recent cases so many parents flock to particular districts there’s now overcrowding and rezoning issue come about. Buying a home with a mortgage that streches you can lead to great stress and burden. In these cases you’re better off buying a house you can afford.
