Tip of the Week – Find School Districts with Homesnap


This tip is for the Homesnap Pro mobile app.


Homesnap makes finding out what school district your client’s listing is in as easy as possible. Just find a home on the Homesnap app and scroll down and you’ll see all the assigned public schools from elementary to high school. Remember the closest school isn’t always the one your kids will go to, so make sure to check Homesnap for the right information.

Each school will have a ranking next to it to give you an idea of how it stacks up with other schools. You can also easily see more information about the school, such as students by grade, student-to-teacher ratio, spending per student and more.

Got your heart set on a school district? Homesnap has you covered. Simply check out the schools profile to see listings within the desired district.
