Choosing a Home…Choosing a School District

You’ve heard right, Tampa has great schools! We have so many options at all grade levels. If you’re looking for public, private, magnet or charter, Tampa has something for you.

So, what does this mean for you if you’re looking to buy a new home? A lot.

If you have a school-aged child, your school needs may play an important part in choosing a neighborhood and vice versa. Make sure you look at the neighborhood schools, talk to school administration and local parents to help find the best school for your student.

Even if you don’t have school-aged children, you still want to consider the school district as you search for a home. The district can have a major impact on future resale value. In fact, Realtor.com notes, “Homes in the best school districts, on average, sell for higher prices than similar homes in less-popular school districts.”
