Invest in local schools for better property values
It's no surprise that families who have kids, or plan on having kids, are very concerned about the quality of local schools when buying a new home.
Studies by the National Association of Realtors have found that school quality is among the top four community factors influencing homebuyers' decisions. Of those surveyed, 75 percent said high-quality schools were very important or somewhat important in their decision-making process.
It's not just families with kids who should be concerned about the quality of their local school systems. School rankings and test scores impact everyone's property values.
Having high-quality schools doesn't happen without the support of the local community. Behind nearly every successful academic institution is a strong group of supportive citizens and financial backers who want to see their schools and students excel.
Here in Lake Oswego, our schools continue to provide a quality education and support strong property values that are full percentage points higher and more stable than some of the surrounding communities.
At Harnish Properties, we are committed to supporting our local schools. We know that we are lucky to live where we do, and we must continue to invest in our school system just as we invest in our homes. Give us a call with any questions about living and working in Lake Oswego!
