Spring Texas area schools were back in session today as the 2009 – 2010 school year began. Due to increasing growth in population in the Spring Texas area over the last several years, the start of a new school year typically meant the opening of new schools. This year the trend continues as three new schools made their debut in the Conroe School District, one new school opened in the Klein School District and four new schools opened in the Spring School District.
As a Spring Texas real estate agent, school districts and the particular schools a home is zoned to is a question I get frequently asked. Although I cannot control the zoning of schools any more than I can control the weather, I can certainly understand the reason for the question. Homes in the better school districts and zoned to the schools with the higher TAKS scores garner the highest demand and the increase in demand translates into greater price appreciation in home values. Thus whether you have school age children or not the school district and the individual schools your home is zoned to will and does impact the value of your home.
As a full-time Realtor® everything in one way or another relates back to real estate for me. So I apologize if back to school makes me think about resale value while back to school makes you think about school supplies, new clothes, schedules, and the never ending last minute notice of projects that are due tomorrow.
Have a great school year!

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
