Searching By School Zone

On e of the hardest parts about moving to a new city is finding the area that fits into your lifestyle, price range and provides all the elements of a community or area that you are looking for in your next home.

If you already know which school you want your children to attend, because you already have children at a particular school, or because your research has found that there is one school you think your kids would benefit from attending. If you do know the school, then this helps to narrow down your choices, and now you are just looking at homes that are located in your chosen school district.

If you take a look at the schools page, you'll find some useful links to the State of Tennessee and the education/school links. If you have a co worker suggesting a school, or your online research has found he perfect school for you, now you can use the search by school option. You will have to know the name of the county that the school is located in. Once you have this, by searching Google or asking your realtor from The Ashton Real Estate Group, you can just select the school type, ie High, middle or elementary, and the list of schools will show that are in that county.

The rest of the search is easy. Now that you have selected the school, you just have to create your search profile in terms of the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, sq ft , garage capacity etc. Then all the homes that are listed will be zoned for the school that you have chosen and the county.

If you would like a pre written list of Williamson County schools and the homes that are listed for sale you can now see a list of High Schools, Middle Schools and Elementary schools.

If you the decide you want to search only for homes in Franklin the you can click on the link for Franklin TN Homes and Schools at the bottom of the page.


One of the toughest questions an agent has to deal with usually involves an out of state buyer asking the Realtor to tell them about certain socio economic features regarding a particular home or subdivision and which is the best school in the Nashville area for their kids.

As Realtors we can not give information that may be seen as "steering" the client to a particular neighborhood or area but we can comment on the value of the home and also provide links to assist the buyer make an informed decision.

Useful Links

Schools Across The Country

I think that one thing that people are concerned about when moving to a new area is the quality of the education system that is available to them. I think it is fair to say that the school system can have a powerful effect on the desirability of a city or an area when people are thinking of moving to. provides a great national database of schools across the country which can be useful if a buyer is considering two or three potential locations to move to.

Home Values and School Systems

One way that the school system can impact the value of real estate in general is the perception of the residents and potential home buyers moving o the area. Any research regarding Williamson County schools for example, will show that they have an excellent reputation and achieve high scores based on the academic performance of the pupils. This maybe a deciding factor when comparing a home in Franklin TN and a home in another city. The good school system then can be seen to adding value to the home.

Tax Revenue and Good Schools

This has the effect of increasing the demand for that home, as apposed to other areas, and as a result increases the list price of the home. When the home sells, the property will eventually be given a tax appraisal, and if the property continues to appreciate then the higher resale value leads to a higher property tax. The property tax is then used as a financial resource for the public schools. The higher the tax value then the more money is available to put invested in the school system.

Now you can see that a great school system will create demand for the area which in turn is reflected in the demand for homes in that area. The increased demand leads to higher prices and more tax revenue which enables the whole system to continue to feed the cycle.

This may help you when considering homes that on paper look exactly the same. They may even be new construction from the same builder but in different parts of the city but have different list prices. The one that is listed at a higher price would have to reflect the higher price the builder had to pay for then land and this is because of the location and the more desirable location is influenced by such factors as local infrastructure, the scenic beauty and of course the school system.

Resale Values

Even if you are not considering having children or do not have kids of a school age, the value of being in a good school system still has to be considered because of the resale value when it comes to selling your Nashville home.
