Homes located in walkable neighborhoods may be more valuable that homes located in car-dependent areas. Higher levels of walkability, determined by its walk score, may be increasing the value of the home. The higher the walk score, the higher the home value. The location of restaurants, schools, libraries, banks and retail shops are some of the amenities which help determine the homes walk score. It is possible that a one-point increase in a walk score could increase the sale value of a home from $700 up to $3000, depending on the market.
