The report, “Walking the Walk: How Walkability Raises Housing Values in U.S. Cities,” looked at 94,000 real-estate transactions in 15 markets across the U.S.
WalkScore allows you to view the ‘walkability’ of any known location, drawing in community points of interest from Google‘s vast directory of local stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc. to calculate a walking distance score.
You can even interact with Walkscore to improve the walkability of your listings.
To improve your listings’ Walk Score, you can easily add and delete amenities yourself.
For any point of interest, you only have to add it once. It will be available for all your future listings for that neighbourhood.
Its a great way to provide potential homebuyers with valuable information and perhaps fetch a higher price for your listings!
