How San Leandro School Ratings Influence Home Prices

 

Conventional wisdom says good public schools boost home values. The reverse is also true. The Zillow real estate search engine rated some local schools.

See how San Leandro schools stack up according to Zillow.

Now check out the median price of $309,000 (check out the graph for the price trend but be prepared for a stomach-dropping plunge.)

Now take a gander at Castro Valley's better-ranked schools, according to Zillow's calculations. 

And, no surprise, Castro Valley enjoys a median home price of $456,400 ( see the trend here).
