Kings near top in home resale value
The Kings Local School District has been ranked 2nd behind Forest Hills School District for highest home sale price in the Greater Cincinnati area. The rankings are based on home sales in the communities of the top public high schools.
Real estate professionals agree that purchasing a home in a respectable school district will increase the property value and return on investment. King’s home sale average has increased 8% since last year, totaling at $276,526 this year.
“Choosing a home near a well-rated school is almost always a good investment,” said Jeanette Schneider, senior vice president, RE/MAX of Southern Ohio. “Given the limited housing inventory throughout Cincinnati, finding the perfect home near a high-ranked school may be a challenge. These homes will sell fast, especially if they are well priced. Buyers need to be prepared to act quickly when the right home hits the market.”
The Kings District is growing larger year by year, welcoming more students and faculty than ever before. With this rating Kings hopes to only increase the success that the district has in store.
“Although I love living in southwest Ohio because of everything the area has to offer (fine arts, entertainment, restaurants, sports, etc…), strong school districts are at the very top
of that list. When families relocate, they think first and foremost about what kind of school district they are moving their kids into,”said Kings assistant superintendent, Tim Spinner.
Kings is proud to have earned this honorable rating for the district. It reflects the hard work of everyone in the community, to make it the best it can be.
“Drive by any one of our 11 new residential developments and you will see signs promoting just that – Kings. I am very proud of the fact that the KLSD is currently No. 2 in this area,” said Spinner. “It says a lot about the job our staff is doing along w/ the great community support we receive – as their expectations are something we strive to exceed everyday.”
