When it comes to finding the right home, there are many factors that a buyer will have to evaluate. In my experience, buyers with children or planning to have children often consider the neighborhood and school district as one of the most important factors when making their decision where to live. The Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Service and your Realtor/Agent should be able to give you accurate information however I always recommend that independent research should be done. Choosing a school district is an important decision and should be tailored to your needs and desires.
Visiting the different districts websites and even calling the schools can be a good idea. It is important to do this when looking to move as rules and guidelines tend to change from time to time and getting the most up to date information from the source is important.
