Outstanding Ofsted Report Adds Value To Homes

Outstanding Ofsted Report Adds Value To Homes

If you've purchased a property near a 'Outstanding' school as rated by Oftsted, then here's some good news for you!

  • House prices are significantly higher in the catchments of Ofsted 'outstanding' primary schools, even compared to those ranked 'Good' in their Ofsted report.
  • Average sale prices are 10% higher around a primary school with outstanding status, (based on £ per sq ft and compared with good status), while average rents are 5% higher.
  • There's a similar price difference of 8% between 'Good' and 'Requires improvement' - the next Ofsted category down. Below that, the impact on house prices seems to fall away.
  • There are regional differences. The relationship between Outstanding school designations and house prices is strongest in the North West. 

If you're looking to purchase in a family area, it would make sense to try to find a property near an Outstanding rated school. Although it may cost a little more than the ones near a 'Good' school, in the long term, you should be be able to see a better resale value as there will always be demand for buyers looking at homes near excellent schools.
