Back in August, Building Cincinnati did this fun blog about Walk Score, a web-based tool that tells the walkability of a property’s neighborhood. Just enter your home address, and it calculates the distances from that address to shopping, restaurants, bars, schools, etc. and then uses a formula to caluculate a “walk score.” If your home is for sale and rates a high “walk score,” it might be a useful marketing tool.
Here’s the scoring breakdown:
* 90-100: Can live fairly easily without a car * 70-90: It's possible to get by without a car * 50-70: Some businesses within walking distance, some require the use of a bike, public transportation or a car * 25-50: Few destinations are within walking range, most require the use of a bike, public transportation or a car * 0-25: Forget about walking
