Milwaukee REALTORS® Keep Consumers Informed About Schools

By HOM Editorial Team
June 2015

The Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS® is working with local governments to help homebuyers and homeowners get the information they need in order to make informed choices about their local schools.

One of the biggest concerns for a family buying a home is the quality of the school their children will be attending. Likewise, current homeowners are concerned about maintaining the quality of schools in their communities.

For the past 26 years, the REALTORS® Association has supported the Public Policy Forum, which compiles and analyzes information gathered from school districts in southeastern Wisconsin. REALTORS® are able to use this information for the benefit of consumers in real estate and housing purchases.

The information from the Policy Forum consists of changes in state and federal education policies, school districts’ standardized test scores, participation metrics, school finances, student enrollment numbers, and other demographics. All of this information is useful not only to homebuyers looking to move into the Milwaukee real estate area, but also to property owners who pay taxes to support their local schools. The Policy Forum’s publications are available on its website.

The Greater Milwaukee Association of REALTORS® knows how important high-quality schools are to homebuyers and homeowners. Good schools are also an essential part of a strong community. Giving residents the information they need to make informed decisions will help build good schools and strong communities.
