How important are API scores for the resale value of a home?

Answer

It all depends on the buyer's. Is a school's API the only selling point to a home? Probably not.... Some don't care about the schools near buy because they don't have, or plan not to have kids. Others like that area but are going to be sending there kids to private school.

Why is the Zestimate so far off?

Answer

A CMA " comparative market analysis " provivded by a Realtor is more accurate when compared to a "Zestimate!"  A " Zestamite " is a zillow estimate. It can be thrown off by a Realtor's marketing strategy. Some like to price there listings high "maybe to satisfy there client" others price there listings low so when Buyers or Realtors search for homes, there listing will pop up and encourage more offers.

The importance of mentioning/naming schools in your listings!

Response

Naming schools in a listing does not garantee that you buyer's children will get to attend. The school named with the "980 API score" might be full and they might be sent to a overflow school in the district with a lower API score. I do agree with though, great schools do help sell homes.

My credit is good but my spouses is not

Answer

First step, I would say is to check with a lender or a bank. They'll run you and your spouses credit and see what they can do. If it's bad, maybe they can point you in the direction or give you advise on how to repair it. Good Luck!
