Field Guide to Schools and the Homebuying Decision
By Frederik Heller, National Association of REALTORS®

Of all the local neighborhood amenities that can influence a buyer's decision to purchase a home, proximity to good quality schools is one of the most influential. According to The 2004 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, schools were listed as a deciding factor for 19% of home buyers. This Field Guide includes articles and studies on the importance of schools for home buyers and how schools impact local property values, along with a sampling of Web sites that provide data on school districts.
