2018 Niche Best Schools

Brevard County Awarded #5 in Florida for Best Schools

We’re very excited to announce that Brevard County has been recognized as one of the Best School Districts in Florida by Niche, the largest website for researching K-12 schools! For the 2018 Best Schools list, Brevard Public Schools scored highly on a variety of factors, including SAT/ACT scores, student-teacher ratio, and the quality of colleges that students consider, as well as reviews from students and parents, to earn this recognition.


It goes without saying that rankings like this are a good thing for

homeowners. With so many families relocating to Florida, this is yet another way the Space Coast stands out among other areas in our state. With relatively low taxes, and an already stellar reputation for safety, Brevard County is a top prospect for people looking to raise their families in the Sunshine State.

When marketing and selling your home, school district and zoning can be a big bonus for a prospective buyer. Often times, when families are moving, they are paying close attention to schools nearby. This can mean buyers looking to stay within their current school zoning, or could mean moving into an area based on the schools their children will attend as a result. When you list with the Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team, we ensure your home is being marketed to the fullest extent. This includes graphical data regarding not just the facts of the home, but also those of the surrounding areas including schools.

There are many factors that affect the value of your home. We’ve al8 Factors that Increase a Home's Valuel heard the old saying “Location, Location, Location” and that will always ring true. However, there are many other things to note when assessing the value of your home. These range from overall condition of the home to things like unique upgrades or functionality – think smart-home accessories, or a second master bedroom that can be used as a guest suite. A quick, computerized valuation like those found on the big real estate search sites can never accurately assess these things – which is why having a REALTOR® is so important. Only a highly skilled real estate agent can look at all these factors and give you an accurate value for your home.

When looking at schools as an influence toward home value, REALTOR.com recently noted that homes near good schools showed an increase of 7.2% over the past year. Brevard Public Schools is an above average, public school district located in Viera, FL. It has 72,285 students in grades PK, K-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 15 to 1.  The likelihood that your Brevard County home went up in value is high. If you are considering selling your home, or would just like to see where your current home value is, please reach out to us. We’d love to provide you with a FREE real estate strategy session.


The future of our world lies in the hands of the generations that come after us. Living on the Space Coast, where we see such enormous technological achievements take flight (pun intended!) it will come as no surprise that children raised here will lead us to great things!

We’d like to thank all the students, faculty and staff for helping our county to accomplish this ranking as 5th in the State. This is a monumental achievement!
