Items on the “must-have” list are being "bumped" by buyers for better schools when shopping for their dream home. 

Here are the Top 5 Factors home buyers are willing to sacrifice for higher education standard:

#1    Garages

#2    Large Backyards

#3    Updated Kitchens

#4  Number of Bedrooms

#5  Outdoor Living Area

84-86% of buyer searches, where buyer’s age range is 18-54, are now including school district boundaries in their search criteria.  Test scores, advanced academic programs and art and music programs, diversity, and before and after school care programs are qualifications of a desirable school district.
