What's your neighborhood's "Walk Score"?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

Here's a quick, easy way to calculate your neighborhood and your home's "walk score". Your walk score is how "walkable" your location is; that is, how quickly and easily you can walk to everyday services such as drug stores, grocery, library, restaurants, dry cleaners, etc.

Visit WalkScore.com to calculate your Knoxville home's walkability index.

We moved to a new home last year and I was delighted to find our new home's walkability was a 66 out of a possible 100 while our former residence only scored an 8. No wonder we used to have to drive so much.

No need to even enter an address.  About the only thing I can walk to is my mail box.  However, I have my mail forwarded to a PO box so I don't even walk to that.

Hey jim,

That is a cool resource!  My home scores a 22 in the walk score, my dream home scored an 82.

Take care!

My walk score is 35. That's not so bad.  This service can be rather useful especially for those
who are going to buy a house or just want to estimate their present location.  I have also tried one more service at http://drivescore.fizber.com/. It is called Drive Score. With the help of it you can see how close establishments are by car. My result is 50. Drive Score calculates your score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. The greater the number of businesses
 nearby the higher the drive score.

Jim:  What a fun site!   Since I live in the county in the foothills of Colorado, I know my walk score is 0; but it was still fun to play around with.
