Selling and Buying a New Home Before Next School Year

Every year around May we get asked the same question 'How do I time out a home purchase to coincide with the upcoming school year?' Wyse Home Team Realty is here to help you plan your next big move over your children's summer. Moving during the summer gives your kids time to finish off the current grade they are in without getting their knowledge disrupted by moving in the middle of a school term.

The Most Common Time To Move

Each year 15.3 million households in America move annually, where roughly 60% of those households move during the summer - between May and August. Planning a move to coincide during this time frame usually begins 6-12 months in advance due to planning out the process.

Maybe you're trying to move to a new school district or school that will fit your child's academic level, sports teams, or special programs; it's just the fact it can be difficult to get your property sold and purchase a new home in 3 months before the next school year starts.

If you're looking to start the process between school years we can definitely assist you with that, but if you're willing to talk about moving in 6, 9, or even 12 months we might have something that can line up just for you.


Some Factors When Moving To A New School District

Sometimes schools change their district lines, so staying up to date with current school districts is the best way to make informative moving decisions. Look into the school's academic programs as well to see if they are what your child is looking for.

Sports are equally important when changing schools. Investigating school coaches and seeing how well teams perform is essential, especially if your child would like to continue when they get to college. See how often the school gets students scholarships to colleges based on sports performance.

No matter the case, moving is a tremendous decision that should not be rushed. Investigate the area to make sure you will actually enjoy the location before you commit and it's too late. Schools are closed during the summer, so there will not be anyone for you to contact with questions about the school until the next year starts.

Local School District Zoning

With the growth of our communities comes the need to review and adjust school district lines. This is a regular process that takes place every 10 years following the United States census. So it's always a good idea to refresh yourself with what each home address is associated with the school district.

During this review, detailed population data will be analyzed to determine school attendance boundaries and zoning. The attendance boundary refers to the geographic area from which students are eligible to attend a local school. Within a school district, the attendance boundary for each school is determined by local authorities. Zoning, on the other hand, guarantees children who live within the school's zone a spot at their local school. However, if there are extra slots available, children living outside the zone may also apply for enrollment.
