According to a new report by the Washington Post, it’s important to research school districts in your area when buying a home, regardless of whether you have children.

On average, homes in areas with good quality school districts cost approximately $50 more per square foot than homes that fall elsewhere.

In one extreme example given by the Post, two statistically similar homes located less that a mile apart in Alexandria, Va., were priced at $790,000 and $920,000 – a difference of $130,000 because of the respective school districts they fell into.
