Worthington Ohio real estate


Why can't we find this Westerville home?

Worthington Highlands - Westreville 43081

Why can't we find this Westerville home?

The  Worthington Highlands neighborhood is in the Columbus Corporation Limit (in the City of Columbus) and it is in the Worthington City School District and it has a Westerville Ohio 43081 mailing address.

If you can not find a "Far North Columbus"  property in Westerville, look for Worthington. Or Columbus? Or perhaps it is in the Olentangy Local School District.

If you are looking for the Westerville City School District and Zillow, Trulia or another site has dangled this "Westerville Home" in front of you (not that there is anything wrong with Worthington schools... or Columbus schools or Olentangy schools.. ) but let's say you are in Westerville schools now and trying to stay in Westerville schools. Or you've determined that the Westerville City School District is the best match for your child.... and you can not find it.... It may be because it has a Westerville address but is not in the Westerville City School District.

Columbus Corporation Limit

Whether homes are in the City of Columbus (in the Columbus Corporation) or in unincorporated areas, it can be confusing since there is no way to know what zip code you are in or what school district you are in....

Cambridge Place

Carriage Oaks Condominiums

Oxford Place

Seven Oaks

Schoolside Village

Worthington Highlands

There are other neighborhoods too... in the City of Columbus (or in a township) in the Worthington City School District with a Westerville mailing address.

Columbus and Suburban Schools Win Win Westerville is included in the Win Win agreement but this is not the area affected.   Homes in the Westerville schools and within the City of Columbus are included.  School districts were in place long before most of northern Franklin County and southern Delaware county were developed.

Worthington schools are not included  the Worthington City school district is not part of the Win - Win agreement.  Worthington schools had a prior agreement.

Why can't we find this Westerville home?

Depending on where a home with a Westerville mailing address shows up online, Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, a local real estate website, it can be confusing to get more information.  Central Ohio can be a little confusing in areas.  The "Far North" area can be confusing.  

The Northeast Columbus areas in the Westerville City School District with a Columbus or Gahanna address can be confusing too but that's another story...  Gahumbusville.

Or the northeast area with Westerville addresses in the Columbus City School District.

Maureen - Like many areas of the country yours sounds like it can be confusing to determine exactly which school district a particular home is in.  This is why it is important to speak with a real estate agent and not rely on shopping online.  As an agent if your home is one that is not in the obvious school distract it would probably be a good idea to put that information in the remarks, if that would be a selling factor.

It's sometimes hard for sellers to find their home online. My first experience with that was with Realtor.com Wrong county?  It's hard to tell a seller that it's OK that their house is in Franklin County but a buyer would have to look in Delaware County to find it. Years ago.   I believe that's OK now.   Buyer's father found the home online?  On our site?  Or Realtor.com?  The buyer's dad lived just south of the house.

We do have signs telling when you are entering and exiting a corporation on the main roads but not within subdivisions.  And we do not have signs telling you what zip code a house is in... school districts we do not have official signs.  My parents visited when we first moved to Columbus and said "do you know your area has Dublin and Worthington schools in it?"  "well yea" 

We are going through changes on our website and it is apparent that we are unque.  Just like everywhere else.

Maureen - you illustrate again why local real estate is ... real estate!  It is amazing the number of things we take for granted that when mentioned to an out-of-area agents ... results in that deer-in-the-headlights look!
