Home buyers paying a premium to live near good schools
The figures from Lloyds found that, around the 30 highest performing state schools in England, home buyers are spending £125,000 more than the local average. In areas close to the top performing schools, the average house price was 9.2 times higher than elsewhere.
What this means for home buyers
Adam Nanson Managing Director of Your Mortgage Expert in Salisbury comments:
“If you are a looking to purchase a home near to a high performing school, you might find you’re paying more than you’d expect for that property and you might find the market fiercely competitive.
“As such, it’s really important for those home buyers to get the most appropriate mortgage deal available in order to save money on their monthly expenses. It is also vital that, when they put their offer in on a competitive property that they understand exactly what they can afford and what their maximum budget is.
