California Has Largest Public School Real Estate Premiums in U.S.
Many children in the U.S. head back to school this week, and it’s likely their parents paid a premium if their drop-off is only a few short blocks away. It costs millions of dollars to live within walking distance of some of America’s most well-rated public schools, according to data from Realtor.com, which ranked the most expensive neighborhoods within steps of a highly-rated public school. To come up with the list, they looked at home prices within a mile radius of most public primary and secondary schools across the United States to find out which have the priciest environs and then narrowed the list down to schools scoring eight or higher on GreatSchools.org.
