Regional Affairs Council – October 2011
Many people now take school “catchment” zones into consideration when looking to buy a family home.
“God bless technology — the Internet is amazing,” says Sean O’Shea, a father of three who has been investigating the quality of local schools.
“For those people who are building and selling housing, one way to guarantee the continual value of that real estate is to make sure that the families who are living there have good schools,” says the head of a community services district.
“There has to be a strong parent organization that supports those schools if you expect the school to succeed,” says one local real estate agent.
