The information in this report comes from NAR's Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, and is about the characteristics of families with children who are buying or selling a home.

  • Forty-nine percent of buyers that have children consider a neighborhood based on the quality of the school districts and 43 percent choose a neighborhood by the convenience to schools.
  • For buyers with children, they purchased larger homes at 2,100 square feet in size with 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms.
  • For 22 percent of buyers with children, child care expenses delayed the home buying process and they made compromises on the price, style, and size of home followed by the distance to a job.
