Walk don’t run…

January 18, 2009





There is a new criterion for judging home value. It’s called “walkability rating” and you may see it in the very near future.

The vision is for a listing to read: bedrooms 2, bathrooms 2, Walk Score: 84. These scores reflect the proximity to stores, shopping and restaurants. In this day of green homes and energy conservation; the less you drive the more you walk and the more valuable your home.

Walk Scores are going to be a part of the future of real estate. It will be surprising to see if they make a difference in home prices.
