What is a home's "Walk Score"

In the past year or so , you may have noticed  that more and more properties for sale are featuring a WalkScore, and more and more listing search sites (like Zillow) are featuring "Walk Scores".

It's very much a subjective number. First of all, what seem people deem walkable, others do not. Additionally, a lower walk score is not necessarily bad- some buyers want more privacy, which would mean that walkable amenities are not close.  If you don't want to be so close to your neighbor, a lower walk score would almost be a prerequisite. Depending on your level of comfort with housing density and the importance of nearby amenities, it is best to choose the walk score range that fits your needs as best as possible. There is no wrong Walk Score- just one that is right for you.

Walk Score is a number between 0 and 100 that measures the walkability of any address.    

90–100     Walker's Paradise — Daily errands do not require a car.
70–89     Very Walkable — Most errands can be accomplished on foot.
50–69     Somewhat Walkable — Some amenities within walking distance.
25–49     Car-Dependent — A few amenities within walking distance.
0–24     Car-Dependent — Almost all errands require a car.
