Do Schools Make a Difference for 360 South Bay Home Buyers?

It’s no real secret that good schools help drive real estate values in certain neighborhoods and communities.  Buyers with kids want to be in areas with good schools and that higher demand helps keep values up.  Even those without kids greatly benefit from a strong school system.  The stronger the schools the more insulated a market is from any downturns.

This couldn’t be more clear than in 360 and the Hollyglen/Del Aire area of Hawthorne.  Values are considerably higher for homes in the Wiseburn School District…..even homes that are directly across the street.

With the construction of a high school in the Wiseburn District, the appeal for homes in the area has only increased.

A recent CAR study showed that 47% of home buyers said good schools were very importan, 23% said that they were somewhat important, 11% said not very important and 19% said that it was not important at all.

The 19% may not realize just how much of an influence schools play on values and demand.  Good elementary schools are often part of a good community and without question most buyers would like to live in a good community.

The Wiseburn School District is highly ranked and that creates a very high demand, especially for families thinking of living in this coastal community.

The study also conclued that 43% of consumers age 34 or under believe highly rated schools are very important.  58% of consumers earning more than $100,000 a year think that highly rated schools are very important.
