A Home’s Walk Score Is Important Because:
1. Walkability and public transit are associated with higher home values
2. Transportation costs are the 2nd largest household expense
3. Commute time and places to walk are two of the most important criteria for home shoppers
4. A home’s location (location efficiency) is often more important than the building’s energy efficiency
Walk Score measures the walkability of any address
based on the distance to nearby places and pedestrian friendliness.
