House hunting by a school district is fairly common within the greater Cincinnati real estate market.
Many of the school districts cross over from one Multiple Listing area to another. For example, the Princeton School District covers Sharonville, Springdale, Evendale, Glendale and even part of West Chester.
Many buyers assume that all properties within certain neighborhoods are located in the same school district- but most school districts wrap around several communities. If the school district is your primary concern make sure you and your agent search by the school district and not suburb codes.
