Walking Neighborhoods

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Real Estate

Suddenly walking is in trend.  Over the last few years studies have shown that buyers are interested more then ever before in a neighborhoods walk ability.  People now want to live in areas where if they have a car they can park it and walk to local restaurants, parks etc.  I thought this site might be useful to First Time Buyers unfamiliar with an area to calculate the walk ability of the address.  http://www.walkscore.com If you are interested in listings in a specific area shoot me an email or go to my website for more information on local listings http://www.debbiegreto.yourkwagent.com

Debbie,

What a great idea.  It does help those who are interested and wanting to walk more.

I always mention walkscore  in a listing presentation when it is 70 or above and then do a full page print out of the map and details to display at the open house. Potential buyers like to see what's in the neighborhood.
