I have written several blogs in the past about what to say in listing ads/announcements. This is a great reminder to include SCHOOL INFO!

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN LISTINGS - DO IT!  IT WILL RESULT IN MORE SHOWINGS AND PERHAPS A CONTRACT!

SCHOOL INFORMATION IN LISTINGS IS OPTIONAL. 

HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT TO SELL THE HOME YOU JUST LISTED. . . . .

Take a few minutes and put the information in the listing.  Many home buyers and agents search by:

  • "HIGH SCHOOL"
  • "MIDDLE SCHOOL"
  • "ELEMENTARY SCHOOL"

I can remember a time when, in Northern Virginia, you couldn't upload a property listing in the MLS without the public school information included.  That was before our present MLS system, so perhaps some listing agents didn't realize that this information has alwasy been an important data field. 

It's important. Schools

Buyers are smart.  They have access to public school test scores and ranking.  All they need to know is "which school"?

Clearly, the listing information should be verified with the school board, but having the High, Middle and Elementary Schools in the listing report is at least a start.

Afraid of the risk??  Make a note for buyers to verify the information. 

Want to sell the property??  Include the schools in the listing report.  Your new listing will be returned in many more searche results by agents and buyers.

Hi Clint,

It is a mandatory field in our MLS System. Many agents search by schools so is very important information!

Clint ~ that is a requirement in our MLS system here in Denver.  Often, I do search for a particular school

Dorie and Dawn -- I thought that was the case for a majority of MLS systems. You should check out the conversation about this post on the fanpage. Very dissenting opinion posted there...
