Strong Schools are Very Important to El Segundo Home Buyers

It’s no real secret that good schools help drive real estate values in certain neighborhoods and communities.  That is certainly the case in El Segundo.

Buyers with kids want to be in areas with good schools and that higher demand helps keep values up.  El Segundo schools are highly ranked and this award winning school district makes a big difference in the real estate market.  Even those without kids greatly benefit from a strong school system.  The stronger the schools the more insulated a market is from any downturns.  That was very evident in El Segund when home prices drop during the recession and housing crisis, but only a very small amount compared with other local areas that do not have as strong a school system.

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 El Segundo Unified 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.
