Search For Perfect Home Often Includes School

Search For Perfect Home Often Includes SchoolSANTA CLARA CA – Along with giving children an education and keeping them occupied, schools also play a major role in how the public searches for homes and where clients buy them.

Realtor.com research shows that homes near highly rated schools receive more internet traffic than otherwise average listings. And this internet traffic is huge, considering that about half of all home buyers – totaling 5.5 million last year – have children under 18, according to the 2016 edition of the National Association of Realtors’® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.

Now, writer David Siroty reports, a new realtor.com® search feature makes it easy to find a home next to the school of a client’s choice.
