Why Schools Matter

So, what is the big deal? If you don’t have children when buying a home, what does being a top -rated school really matter? According to Zillow, buying a home in a good school district means that the cost of buying a home will be higher in price. However, it will make a huge difference in resale value.

Zillow also states that it will also protect you from the real estate market ups and downs. Therefore, buying a home in a good school district, regardless if a school personally impacts you, the quality of the district will impact your home value.

Melissa’s Story

In fact, mom of three, Melissa, said that choosing a home in a top-rated school was not only on her list of desires when looking for a home, but it was a must have. Melissa’s family was growing and they needed more space.

When they bought their first home, they knew they were eventually going to have a family. So, they chose to buy a home in a highly ranked school district. When it came time to sell, Melissa’s family was able to sell their home within three weeks on the market. That doesn’t happen for everybody, but the chances of selling, regardless if you have children or not, is higher when your schools are better.

Additionally, when Melissa’s family was ready to buy their second home she stated,

“With three young children at home, their education is a top priority for our family. We cannot even consider a home in a poorly rated school district, even if it means that we will pay a little more for our home.”

When choosing a home, being mindful of the quality of school district is important. Every individual and family will have to take into account their own priorities and what they can afford.

However, if you are interested in moving to the Northville or Novi area, you can rest assured that the school districts are highly rated. This high rating will help the value of the homes in the area, as well as, help with resale value.
