Edina, Minn. - Sept. 5, 2014 – Edina Realty, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, enables potential homebuyers to search for homes for sale according to school district, a feature not necessarily available on other real estate websites. With just a few clicks, you can search for homes in the best school districts in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
“Parents with school-aged kids aren’t just thinking about location in and of itself; they often want a home that’s located in or near a top notch school district,” said Greg Mason, Edina Realty Home Services president and CEO. “That’s why we offer this search feature on our website; anyone can easily search virtually every home for sale in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and sort through homes that fit their top priorities, such as the school district.”
The leading real estate website in the area, Edina Realty’s website includes a unique community page for each Minnesota and western Wisconsin town that has a real estate listing on the market. Every community page includes comprehensive information on every public and private school in the area, including elementary, middle and high schools. The total number of students and student-teacher ratio for each school is also included.
Each page also includes listings of virtually every home for sale, as well as the median sales prices of a home in the area, the number of active listings, how many homes have sold in the past 90 days and the average length of time homes are on the market before selling.
According to U.S. News and World Report, 26 Minnesota high schools ranked above average in the number of students who were tested and passed AP® exams, giving them a high college readiness score. Of the 600 high schools on the list, Edina High School, Mahtomedi High School and Houston High School in Houston, Minn. ranked the highest in college readiness.
“Determining the most important criteria for your new home and neighborhood are the best places to start your home search,” Mason said. “Sorting through every home on the market can be daunting, but when you narrow the search results by criteria such as the school district, it can help you focus on what’s really important to you and your family.”
