One of the most common things that our customers ask when inquiring about our properties is the school districts nearby. Fortunately, the school districts in New Jersey are known for being of high-quality, but some areas are certainly better than others. Here are the top reasons why you should consider the school district in your home search area.
- Your children’s education. If you have children, a great school district sets them off on the right foot. A great high school can lead to better performance on standardized testing, greater admission rates at high quality colleges and universities, and high-achieving degrees that can lead them to a life of success.
- Neighborhood quality. Whether you love children or fantasize about reaching the age where you can move into a senior living complex without those “little monsters,” your neighborhood depends on the qualities of the families who live in it. When you live near a good school, your chances are higher of living in a nice neighborhood where the kids are respectful, the community is closely engaged, and people care about their neighbors.
- Resale value. By this point, our child-free customers are probably rolling their eyes. Really, do you need to consider school districts? Our experience says yes! Unless you are 100% certain that you want to live in your house forever, you should always keep an eye open for resale opportunities. This is like planting seeds for your financial future! A home in a great school district can make your home sell faster, higher, and easier, so even if you do not have children, this can be an investment into your own future.
