One of the biggest decisions we can make is buying a home. If we have kids it can be even bigger as we want to know what school district the home is in. I always recommend to my clients to do the research and find out what is most important to them. In Colorado many districts are open enrollment so it may not matter as much where you buy your home it may just be location preference. One site that has been recommended to share is www.schoolgrades.org where you can do some good research. No matter what, when buying a new home be sure to take your time and do your diligence and get the answers you need.
