As an Orange County Real Estate Agent one of the most common questions that I get asked by my clients is “Fred, are schools important if you don’t have kids?” My answer to this question is yes.
Choosing a home in a good school district is important because, even if you don’t have children right now, but you plan on starting a family in the future, why not purchase a home that’s located in a great school district now rather than having to sell your home and move to good school district in the future?
In today’s post I will cover some great tips that you can use to find a great school district in Orange County.
Step 1 – U.S. Department Of Education
When searching for a school district in Orange County the first resource that you can use is the US Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. They offer many publications both online and off-line that rate school districts across the country.
Step 2 – Refine Your Online Search
Besides using many online resources like the US Department of Education, there are a wide variety of websites to choose from that rate school districts in Orange County and across the country like: www.greatschools.org and www.schooldigger.com. Both of these websites rate schools based upon test scores, district overviews, parent reviews and school environments so you could have the confidence that the school districts which are rated have received their ratings based upon actual comprehensive reviews from people who send their children to schools in those districts.
Step 3 – Talk To Local Moms
Another great way to find awesome school districts in Orange County is to talk with moms who send their children to the school districts. Thanks to the Internet, there are many groups and forums that you can use to connect with moms in Irvine to learn more about the best school districts.
Last of all, but most important, one of the very best resources that you can use to find a great school district is by asking myself or one of the other experience Realtors at Fred Sed & Associates. Although we buy and sell homes for our clients here, we also send our children to schools in this area and would be glad to assist you in finding homes that are in a school district that meets your needs.
