Home Seller Tips: Good Schools Help Sell Your House!

Home buyers choose the home they purchase for all sorts of reasons.   In my opinion several of the key factors include (a) the immediate area surrounding the neighborhood, (b) the crime rate and (c) the quality of the assigned schools.

I am not a social scientist, activist or political pundit.  But as a Brevard County, Florida real estate agent I believe this is true....

Good schools make it easier to sell a neighborhood.

The title says it pretty well - good schools help sell a house.

But what if you are not selling your home?   Well, you probably will one day.  And when you do, the quality of the local schools will impact your price and home's desirability.

Even those who have no children in their local school system should be concerned about the quality of schools.  Good school districts have a positive impact on home desirability (values).

In the November 2014 Brevard County, Florida election ballot there will be a School Board Referendum on a proposed one-half cent local sales surtax.  A copy of the ballot language is presented here.

Read, review and decide for yourself then exercise your right to vote.
