House hunting by a school district is fairly common within the greater Cincinnati real estate market. Remember 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 parts of West Chester.
If the school district is your primary concern make sure you and your agent search by the school district and not suburb codes.
