The Most Affordable Places with Top Schools
DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | THURSDAY, MAY 19, 2016
ZIP codes in the Kansas City, Indianapolis, and St. Louis metro areas top the list of places that offer affordable housing and top-rated schools.
In their analysis, HomeUnion, an online real estate investment management firm, looked at the median home prices in 31 major metro areas and the schools ranked in the 80th percentile or higher by the National Center for Education Statistics.
“The quality of public schools is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a home, especially for families,” says Don Ganguly, CEO of HomeUnion. “In many cases, home buyers are willing to pay more to be located in a neighborhood with highly ranked schools, even if it means downsizing into a smaller home.”
