Educate Your Clients With RPR School Searches and Reports

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.

    The school search doesn’t work well. I narrowed down to a specific school name and it couldn’t pull up all properties that were zoned to that school.
