Play Up Your Stellar School Rating

Daily Real Estate News | Good schools pay off in a home sale. Indeed, having a high rating on sites like GreatSchools, which rates public schools based on statewide assessments, can be a boon to a home’s value. Realtor.comĀ® researchers analyzed 1.6 million home listings in the U.S. through the first six months of 2016 and found that houses in public-school districts with GreatSchools’ highest ratings, 9 or 10, were priced on average 77 percent higher than homes in nearby districts with scores of 6 or lower.

Furthermore, homes that are located in top districts sell four days faster – 58 days, versus the national median of 62 days, realtor.comĀ®’s analysis notes.
