The search for the perfect home can be tough, but pair that with getting into the right school district and you may feel stumped. How many times have you looked online, only to fall in love with a misleading property that is not within your preferred school boundary line?
Good news! McEnearney.com now offers a School Boundary Search tool to make life a whole lot easier when searching for a new home. It’s simple and easy to use.
Select the Search tab at the top and click Map Search in the drop down menu. From there, select School Search and enter a school district of your choice. Once chosen, a boundary line will appear showing all the active listings within that school district; neat huh? Home buying can be a strenuous task, especially when your children’s education is involved. Give the new feature a whirl, and never doubt your home search again.
