If you are, you will not be alone as one of the top priorities for family home buyers is finding a house within a catchment area of a good school, in fact according to a report* one in four families will have relocated just to get a good school place for their children.
The research by the *Opinium Research on behalf of Santandar bank also found that parents were prepared to pay considerably more to be close to good schools.
The baby boom in England especially in the South East has put pressure on primary school places, which has meant demand to move closer to good schools is at an all-time high.
If you are looking to relocate to be in the catchment area of a good school then here are a couple of properties currently on the market.
