Looking for advice on Walk Score

Real Estate Agent with Bend Premier Real Estate

I think Walk Score is an amazing piece of internet technology.  It is fascinating to me to be able to virtually see the ammenities my neighborhood has to offer, and it is great incentive to challenge myself to walk places, rather than hop in the car.   

Along with many of the technologies though, there is much to learn, and unfortunately I don't have all the time in the world to explore Walk Score.  Enter Active Rain!  You, my colleagues and friends probably have some of the best information out there.  Perhaps this can be a place to share that information. 

- What feature do you like best about Walk Score?

- How do you use it in your real estate business?

- What is the best way you've found to present the information to clients?

I'd love to hear your own personal stories, and advice on maximizing the value of Walk Score.  Is it a piece of technology we should care about as real estate professionals?  Why, or why not?

WalkScore needs to better EXPLAIN itself.....I see it on my postlets listings and it means NOTHING if the criteria for the SCORE is not explained

Good point Wallace.  I guess it's something like, the higher the score, the better the location of the house?  Although that is completely relative.  I know plenty of people who would rather live in the middle of nowhere where they can't be bothered by anything.  They would want the lowest possible walk score!
