It really depends on the Site Logistics which means location of the house you want to buy and the distance to the closest school. Traffic Study plays a very important role in determining the location of the house you purchase. For example, One Way Streets or Two Way streets near to the house and schools which can potentially create less or more traffice near the house due to school traffic. Normally, buying close to a school can be advantageous If you have kid/s going to the same school. If not then you do invite more traffic on the street and parking issues when schools are in session. Also, If the house you buy is close to the back yard of any school, It should be relatively okay.
Each house is different and must be identified separately depending upon the nearest school location.
Should you have any further questions, Please feel free to contact me.
Good luck to you.
