Sage Realty LLC Announces the Increasing Importance of Walkability in Homes for Sale in Wayne, PA
Wayne, PA – August, 2016 – Sage Realty, a dedicated home buyers agency, has announced the increasing importance placed on walkability, and the influence the walk score has on homes for sale in Wayne, PA, and the general real estate market.
Demand for homes with high walk scores has nearly doubled over the past six years. More and more people desire homes within easy walking distance of shopping, food, entertainment, and employment opportunities, whereas suburban areas have seen a decline in popularity. According to the Regional Plan Association (RPA), about half of millennials and baby boomers prefer to live in more walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods.
Tracey Carney of Sage Realty uses her unique background in landscape architecture to help home buyers find the ideal home with the highest walk scores in Wayne, PA, and surrounding areas such as Narberth, Ardmore, Bryn Mawr and Malvern.
The increasing demand for high walkability has left its mark on the current housing market. Prices for homes within accessible communities have increased as the supply of qualifying homes has failed to keep up with demand. Single-family homes in more suburban areas have seen a decrease in popularity although currently a shortage exists. The RPA predicts that if current trends persist, the supply of detached single-family homes will exceed demand for at least 25 years.
