If you are thinking about buying a home in the Houston area, quality of local schools should be a major consideration, whether you have school age children or not. If you have children who will be attending local schools, it is reassuring to know that they will have access to high-quality primary and secondary education. If you don't have school age children, the quality of nearby schools is still important. It is more likely that houses located within the attendance boundaries of a strong school district will see higher appreciation when the market is good and more likely to hold their value when it is not so good than houses that are in lower-quality school districts. It also is easily demonstrated that homes in good school districts usually sell faster than homes in lower-quality school districts, especially when housing demand is soft. And finally, many homeowners believe they will have better neighbors when they live in a good school district. All in all, it is relatively easy to make a compelling case that buying in a strong school district can enhance and help protect the investment you make when you purchase a home..
