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.

The Main Line outside of Philadelphia offers many communities that have homes for sale with excellent walk scores in all price ranges.

The density of these areas range from almost urban to fairly suburban. You can have a city-like lifestyle or balance the town atmosphere with a more suburban escape.
