But of course the overriding concerns of most parents will be the rating of the schools.

School districts and the school ratings often affect the decision. Families want the best rated schools for their children in the best communities that they can afford. Others purchase homes in the best school districts to capitalize on return on investment when it comes to a future sale of their home. If it does not matter to a buyer, a home that is not in the best rated school districts could be a better deal for them. I have seen instances where one side of the street is a prime school district and the other side of the street is outside of the district. The same home could be considerably less on the 'other' side of the street.

The flip side is that if it's not especially important to you, you may find a better value in terms of square footage, amenities etc in areas where that premium doesn't apply.
