If you have children, you know the local school system is important. If you do not have children, keep in mind that future buyers may consider schools a top priority. Also, in areas where school systems are good, property values will rise or at least remain stable.
You will want to know if the local schools are overcrowded. Contact the school district and ask if there are enough schools to support the local population. If not, how will building new schools affect property taxes?
There are school reports available online with details about students’ scores on standardized tests. Other ways of ascertaining the level of school system is to attend school board meetings, visit the schools and talk to neighbors.
