When surveyed, only seven percent of buyers said that school districts are not important to them when looking for a new home.
When you are out searching for the home of your dreams near the perfect school, here are some things you'll need to do:
1. Make a list of what else is important for your family - and rank those factors. Do you need a large home? How about a nice backyard? Maybe you need a big garage. Know your priorities.

Happy hunting, and good luck to all the students this year as they head back to school!
