Great Schools Raise Home Values

Dear Monica:  This year our town will vote on a parcel tax that directly supports the schools here.  What is your opinion on this as it affects real estate values?  Valerie L.

Dear Valerie:  What I have learned in the years I have been a real estate broker is that nothing affects real estate values more than schools.  People will pay more to live in a good school district.  When a parcel tax is on the ballot, I do some research to confirm the details, and then I vote “Yes”.  Support for schools is one of the best ways to support the value of your community and of your property.  If you have school-aged children, there are even more reasons to support a parcel tax.  It simply makes good sense.
