WalkabilityWalkability and Lifestyle: What is a Walk Score?

Buying a home is about more than finding the right house. Buying a home is also about finding the community that supports the things that you value. One criteria would be the walk score. Walk score is a number between 0 and 100 that ranks the walkability of an address. A ‘0’ score would indicate an address where most errands or activities would require a car whereas a ‘100’ would indicate that most locales would be within walking distance of the address.
