Walkability is Topping the List of Amenities

The rising popularity of walkability is becoming a popular feature when looking for a home in urban areas as well as the suburbs. Home buyers are seeing the importance in having nearby amenities that can be reached on foot.

Walkable neighborhoods provide many benefits to the environment and health, including adding to the spirit of the overall community.

With automobiles being a leading cause of climate change, it is obvious that the more walking will be better off for all of us. Another interesting fact to add is, the average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 7 pounds less than someone who only drives.

Recent studies have stated that, having amenities within walking distance can boost the value of a home as much as $3,000.
