Yes, access to good schools. This is true even if no member of your family will attend the schools. The issue of good schools is major when selling your home. There are many resources that will help you evaluate the schools in a particular area. Some of these resources require a fee and others are free. Your real estate agent can provide you with the basic information regarding schools in a particular area. You can also get that basic information from the Internet, usually from a city’s, county’s, or area’s website.
As for the evaluation of a particular school, I have found that the website www.projectappleseed.org is a great resource. This website lists tons of places that evaluate schools. There is no one-size-fits-all school evaluation. Some families are looking for a school system that has classes for gifted students or that has a history of sending students to prestigious colleges. Some families are looking for a school that excels in sports or that can provide educational facilities for the disabled. Using this website and the information available on the Internet, you should be able to find a school that fits your needs.
