Hot School Zones In The Tallahassee Real Estate Market

Posted by Joe Manausa on Thursday, February 5th, 2009 at 10:20am.

Whenever we work with families with children who want to buy a home in Tallahassee, invariably one of the most important criterion that they use in the home selection process is the school zone in which the home falls. Everybody has their own opinions on what school is hot and what school is not, but maybe real estate supply and demand can show us what Tallahassee home buyers think!

After downloading all of the active listings in the Tallahassee Board of Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as all of the sales for the previous 12 months, I was able to assemble a supply and demand analysis for every Elementary, Middle and High School zone in Leon County.

Elementary School Zones In Tallahassee

As anyone who follows the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog knows, we have far too much inventory in the Tallahassee housing market. When we measure "months of supply," it is normal to consider 6.0 months of supply a balanced market. More supply than that makes it a buyers market (current), and less supply than that makes it a sellers market. There is not one single school zone in Tallahassee that has a balanced supply and demand curve. The following elementary schools are sorted by months of supply of homes.
