Sales News:- Revealed – the premiums for homes close to good schools
We have long-known that buying a home in the catchment area of a popular school carries a premium, but now for the first time research has tried to show exactly how much. According to a survey from the Santander finance company:
– homes near a top state primary school have an 8% premium;
– being near an exception secondary can add up to 42%;
– around 60% of parents consider moving to be near a better school.
Our region has many exceptional state and private schools – the south west saw the biggest improvement in grades four/C and above in this year’s GCSE results, says the Department for Education. We can help advise on homes located close to some of the best schools in Exeter and around East Devon.
