There are a couple of ways to find the information. You can use the cap symbol in the tool bar to search for schools, once there click upon the relevant school and all properties within the boundaries will show up. Another less robust option would be to use the key feature search and anything property matching those key words somewhere in the description will appear. The only benefit to this would be sometimes the boundary lines on Zillow mapping may not be up to date and you may miss possible properties. Most agents are diligent about putting the schooling information in the property details so the keyword search should always pull relevant properties just less systematically. I hope you find this helpful.

I just did a search for a school district, clicked on "view all homes on Zillow in this boundary" and it pulled up a map with boundaries set and the homes in it. The first HALF DOZEN homes were all in a different district! Zillow isn't the one for me anymore. Between so many houses being pending and their site not being updated, I'm out. I will use Redfin only going forward.

You can do this w/ Zillow native features.  When you are doing a search and see the map, click on the graduation cap symbol.  The schools now show up in the search boundaries.  Now click on the school that you want to view homes in and there should be a option to click "only view homes in this school boundary".

Of Course I recommend Zillow! How can you use Zillow to be sure you are looking in the School District of your choice? I would look up the School District Boundaries, Then match that area up with the Zip Codes that are part of that School District. Be careful though, sometimes School Districts will actually split a Zip Code or take just a small part of it. My Advice would be to stick with the Zip Codes that are ENTIRELY in your new School District, that way, if they change the boundaries in the future you are less likely to be affected. If you are in Illinois, Try us at [deleted by Zillow moderator.

Pretty annoyed at all of the realtors saying: go ask your realtor.  What lizzard is asking for is a simple map-related search.  Also troubling is that a link was removed by a zillow moderator.

You can also have your Realtor provide homes in a specific School District.

You can type the name of the school into the search bar on [hotlink removed by Zillow moderator] to see all homes for sale within that school's attendance zone.

Remember, there is never any guarantee that your children will be going to the school even though you are within the district. There is an elementary school right outside our gate and our son was being bused 2.5 miles away to another school until I ripped out of school and placed him into private school until he was allowed to attend the school outside our gate.

I would go to the school district and find out what risk you are going up against.

Good luck.

The site schoolandhousing.com provides services to allow users to search by even individual school.

Contact a real estate agent in your area. In many cases they can set up a custom email search through the local MLS with parameters that can include school districts as well as numbers of bedrooms/bathrooms, square footage and price.
