Nearby Private School

3 Replies

Hey guys,

I'm currently looking at property in a good area with a good private school in almost walking distance. The tuition runs anywhere from 8-15K depending on what grade your child is in. Does this mean rentals are obsolete in this area? Especially if one of my arguments for buying the house as a rental is that it's next to a really good school.


You might get those parents who want to send their kids to that school, but they cannot afford both the tuition and buying a house?

@Dawn A.

The thought had crossed my mind but I wasn't sure if that was a reasonable assumption. Is that something you would do if you were in that position?

@Kyle Atans (it doesn't seem to want to make you name selectable)

I did take a look at that. And there's a decent elementary(8), middle(7), and high school(7) in the area(GreatSchools rating). I know the house is zoned for that district, but I can't tell which schools specifically the house is zoned for and if you're allowed to switch schools in the same district. (Haven't had the opportunity to have kids myself yet)
