Homes For Sale In Chiles High School ZoneI saw this question about homes zoned for Chiles High School on a forum the other day, and before I could answer it, another forum member pointed them to the Tallahassee Real Estate Website. How cool is that!

Apparently, some people think Chiles is the best high school in town, but I can tell you as a true red-blooded Leon High School grad, there are those of us with different opinions! My daughter now, and my sons later, are Leon Lions.

But back to the forum question, the reader was looking for homes zoned for Chiles High School and wrote:

Hi, We may be relocating to Tallahassee and I'd like to know what neighborhoods would be zoned for Chiles High. That seems to be the best high school in the area. I read about Killearn, but are there others that are also zoned for it? Thanks! - ELC

But it got me thinking ... (scary huh?)

Would people like direct links to sort by school zones? For example, you can find all 364 homes for sales in the Chiles High School zone with the click of a single link. Is this of value to our readers?

As far as home values go, the sales of homes zoned for Chiles High School looks good. Values are moving contrary to the rest of the market (though this is only comparing sales through June each year, and year end numbers might show a different trend).

Hi Joe, area schools certainly drive residents to a particular area, for sure. They only want to live within certain districts. And some homes are directly marketed as being is "x" school district.

Joe, in the Kansas City area, schools definitely effect buyer preference & home values.

We have about 4 or 5 really good high schools here in SIlicon Valley-- they always make the top 500 list for the nation.  Prices are outrageous there, and people move from all over the world just to get thied kids into one of those schools.  They don't buy a house, they buy into a school zone.

Add me to the list of school advocates. I purposely lived in the Cupertino School District in Silicon Valley when my kids were in school even though I wanted to live elsewhere. When it came time for them to start high school I moved to a district and school in the east bay that seemed to place a higher percentage of students into U.C, Berkeley where they wanted to go. The luckiest thing I did by accident was buy the house next door to the dean of admissions. my plan worked.

Go Cal !!! Plus resale values were always good when I moved.
