I'm a retired real estate broker. I understand your frustration and every broker agrees with you. Unfortunately, websites like Trulia and Zillow get their information from 3rd party websites that make their own judgments about school districts. Trulia and Zillow are not real estate brokerages and therefore allowed to post any information they choose i.e. school district ratings, crime statistics, etc. whether this information is accurate or not.

As real estate brokers, we constantly hear from buyers that they believe the content on these websites and we repeatedly inform these buyers that the information is not always accurate. In addition, we also inforrm buyers that they have to do their own research and visit the schools in person as well as visiting police departments in person. To obey Federal and State Fair Housing laws, we cannot tell buyers any information regarding school ratings or reputation as well as any crime statistics.

A two bedroom house is not advisable, always harder to sell in good and not so good markets.
