The prioriy a parent places on schools in the course of searching is almost always pretty high. since there are so
any considerations in the process,however, it may not be among the first questions they ask. I feel that such gaps in a prospectivee buyer's inquiry are mine to determine and fill. By learning all I can about the person making that inquiry and their situation . and motivation, I demonstrate to them my value as their professional partner in their process of finding the perfect home.

I believe it should be an important consideration, but with everything in life, it depends on each and every client's individual needs. That being said, I always ask the question about the families educational concerns. Make sure they have all the information and websites to research the schools of the areas they're interested in, and also, as previously stated, make sure they understand that a schools zoning can change.

It is a major concern here in NYC. However, I let parents research the schools on their own. They can read parent reviews of schools as well as the Dept. of Ed. info on the schools, all readily available online. One thing I never do is state that a property is zoned for a specific school, as the zoning is always subject to change.

In my area, Parents have this at the top of the list. even people with no children have a vested interest in school scores, giving the resale value of their property a boost.

In Hillsborough County it should be high on the priority list--even if the buyer doesn't have children of school age or if they intend to pay for private school. The demand for homes assigned to higher quality schools will always be higher than those that may be a street over and assigned to inferior schools.

Parents usually place school zones at the top of their list, the majority of parents have done their research. However upon request, I recommend they visit and research the NYC Department of Education site; http://schools.nyc.gov/schoolsearch/Maps.aspx?grade=ALL&…
