Many buyers today want to be able to walk to restaurants, shopping, museums, entertainment. They want to be able to go out in the evening and not have to drive home.
Are you aware of the iPhone app WALK SCORE? Bayfront Tower, for example, scores an 82. Parkshore Plaza scores an 83. Both are “very walkable”. A house on 16th Ave NE may have a score of 34 and one on Venetian Isles a score of 12.
You can also sort for specifics for an address (or have the app use your location) and the app will show you grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, schools, hardware stores, etc. So – it’s useful for when you’re traveling as well as when you’re shopping for a home or condo.
