Living in a walkable community is important to many homebuyers today. Following results from the NAR’s 2020 Community Preference Survey, the association created a range of resources to raise awareness of walkability and detail how Realtors could help make communities more walkable.
With the demand for walkability on the upswing, the National Association of REALTORS® has rolled out several resources to better acquaint members with the concept and how the trend impacts their business.
Homebuyers rely on REALTORS®’ knowledge of local markets and conditions to help them find a home in a neighborhood of choice, the NAR emphasized, adding “As the walkability trend continues, homebuyers will expect REALTORS® to know how walkable a community is and where the most walkable communities in an area are located.”
According to NAR’s 2020 Community Preference Survey, 76% of respondents say that living in a walkable community would be very or somewhat important if they were deciding where to live today, and nearly 80 percent see walkable communities as an important attribute.
