Location Education: Help Clients Find Great Schools

August 17 2011

Suresh Srinivasan brings us this post from the ReachFactor blog.

For the prospects with young children, it’s an incredible selling point to be able to boast about a neighborhood’s excellent school district. Or, if schools happen to not be so great in a particular district, you can direct homebuyers to greener pastures. But for most real estate agents, it might not be standard practice to stay up to date on school ratings and reviews. A new, free mobile iPhone/iPad/iTouch app makes it possible for prospects to research this information on their own.

GreatSchoolsGreatSchools allows you to locate and map nearby elementary, middle, and high schools or search listings across the U.S. You can also view detailed ratings, reviews, and test scores.

 

Key features include:

  • Search the latest school information for more than 125,000 K-12 schools in the U.S., including public, public charter, and private schools
  • Map and compare schools for any city, based on your current location
  • Filter schools by public or private, grade level, distance, GreatSchools Rating, Community Rating or, enrollment size
  • Browse parent reviews, recent test scores, and district info
  • Save schools to your personal list of favorites for quick retrieval later
  • Share schools with family and friends

RE Technology has published a variety of articles recently that have touched upon the value of schools information and neighborhood data in general. You may want to read a recent article by Harper Thorpe or a past article from Suresh for more information about this theme.
