In an article in the Washington Post they discussed why walkable communities have become so important to today’s homebuyers. The current most popular trend for homebuyers is to be able to park their cars and walk to retail stores, art galleries, eateries and events. The very popular West Main Townhomes is a prime example of a walkable community.
“Home buyers increasingly are asking real estate agents to show them homes in walkable communities. Over the last few years, walkable communities have jumped to the top of many home buyers’ search criteria because they want to live in areas with easy access to public transportation, schools, stores and entertainment.
A neighborhood’s walkability is the degree to which it has safe, designated areas for people to walk or bike to work, dining, shopping and entertainment venues. Walkable communities are often touted as being easier to get around and fostering a greater sense of community. A one-mile walk through a compact, walkable neighborhood takes residents past numerous businesses and shops. Comparatively, residents in sprawling, suburban neighborhoods would pass very few shops on a one-mile walk.
As more walkable neighborhoods are developed, there will be opportunities to realize additional benefits for the environment, individuals’ health, economic development and real estate property values. Walkable communities encourage fewer car trips, which minimizes air and noise pollution, since residents can feasibly walk to everything they need on a day-to-day basis. And with fewer cars on the road, communities can use portions of the roadway to build more green space, which serves as stormwater management and wildlife habitat.
