How San Leandro School Ratings Influence Home Prices

The real estate search engine Zillow rates local schools.

 

Conventional wisdom says good public schools boost home values. The reverse is also true. The Zillow real estate search engine rated some local schools.

See how San Leandro schools stack up according to Zillow.

Now check out the median price of $309,000 (check out the graph for the price trend but be prepared for a stomach-dropping plunge.)

Now take a gander at Castro Valley's better-ranked schools, according to Zillow's calculations. 

And, no surprise, Castro Valley enjoys a median home price of $456,400 (see the trend here).

Sure Craig. Judging by everything you've written, you know nothing of what employers want or need.

Jessica, "special needs" kids consume 5% of the education budget. They're a convenient excuse for educrats who wish to continue to use them as hostage for perpetual tax hikes, but once again, the math doesn't support the argument.

David your arguement is that labor costs have nothing to do with hiring trends or the cost of production. Profound ,we can end the wage drought with your permission. You argue that wages are less a factor than taxes, right?Smart thinking.

Craig, every large survey of employers and small business state their number one concern, that's been constant the past 4 years is... Sales. (or lack thereof) After that it's.... Taxes. (too high) After that it's... Regulations. (too many, cost of compliance too high) Nowhere in there is the cost, scarcity or difficulty in hiring. Again, you know nothing of what employers want. It's abundantly clear.
