Hi Ken -- The best way to search is to contact an agent in the Miami area and ask them to set you up on an automatic email "drip" program that will send you all current listings and new ones as they come on the market. In the MLS, we can draw lines around a district that we want to find homes in. Unfortunately, if you just put in the zipcode, you'll get other properties that are not in this school district. You'd then have to cross check the address with the school district, etc., etc.

In any event, especially in this challenging market, your best bet is to work with a Realtor. It doesn't cost you any more and most likely it will end up saving you tons of time and lots of money. If you'd like me to recommend a good agent, please give me a call.

Happy House Hunting!

first check the boundaries of the public school you want your child to attend (
With that in mind, do your search for the home in any search site - I am sending mine as a web reference below.

Good Luck!
