How much can a good school zone affect rental yield?

A good school zone can boost property values by up to 20 per cent, according to some valuers.


If a school has a high rating, it will drive up the home prices in its school zone.

 For investors, this can yield high rental returns as well as capital growth.

Thanks to the automatic school acceptance that results from residing in a particular catchment area, competition for relevant properties can be fierce.

Time savings on school commuting made possible by close proximity, are a huge factor when it comes to demand.

 Indeed, with constantly increasing traffic levels and burgeoning lifestyle/career demands, living close to a school can be a definitive game-changer.


It’s also not generally recommended to make an investment based on a single factor like school zoning alone.

Be sure that the property has more going for it, because zones can always change along with school reputations.

Only houses located on the inside of boundary lines are considered to be in-zone, and zones may be amended.

Finally, keep in mind that if you want to successfully invest in a good school zone you’ll probably need to be able to afford a larger family home to accommodate a growing family.
