How walkable is this home for sale?
By Dave Williams
In Real Estate we say 3 things matter: “Location, Location, Location” but before walk scores we couldn’t measure it.
Now, you can!
Recently the Canadian Real Estate Association announced the addition of Walk Scores© to Realtor.ca©.
Now when browsing homes for sale you get a walk score on all the properties you are considering buying.
Rated from 0 to 100 Walk Score gives you a picture of how:
(0-49) car dependent you will be, whether you will need a car for all your errands
(0-24),have a few amenities within walking distance
(25-49) . Higher walk scores indicate whether a home is
(50-69) somewhat walkable,
(70-89) very walkable where most errands can be accomplished on foot, right up to
(90-100) is walker’s paradise.
So from here when considering buying a home you can ask” “How walkable is it?”
