Zip Realty's School District & Neighborhood Search Tool

Many of the Mom Buzz readers have school aged children, so I thought that the following was a great tip for families about to move to a new city or state. It was written by Leslie Tyler from ZipRealty. So enjoy and happy buzzing!


It is no surprise that most families with school aged kids consider the school district of their potential home an important factor. However, it isn’t always easy to see what school district or neighborhood your new home options are in---especially if you’re relocating to a new city/state or are moving into the suburbs in search of your first home.

As a busy mom myself, I know how little time there is to shop for homes while managing the rest of your life. So we at ZipRealty have tried to put the information you need at your fingertips with just a few clicks. Not only school district search tools, but maps showing important neighborhood amenities like restaurants, stores, libraries and parks (along with Yelp! reviews), customer satisfaction ratings of our local REALTORS®, and search tools to find homes for sale within a certain distance of your office, daycare center, or any other important address.

You can access all of these home search tools, along with comprehensive, up-to-date home listings, for free by registering at
