Fifty-three percent of buyers that have children consider a neighborhood based on the quality of the school districts. And fifty percent cite convenience to schools as a priority, according to a report from the National Association of REALTORS®.
The report’s findings bode well for agents who use RPR (Realtors Property Resource®), the nation’s leading aggregator of real estate data. Agents can leverage the platform’s expansive tools to research schools, showcase nearby listings, and create professional-quality reports for clients.
