Salem Oregon Home Values Increase With Walkabiltiy
Walking is not only a great way to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but according to a new study, it also contributes to increased Salem Oregon home values!
"Walking the Walk: How Walkability Raises Housing Values in U.S. Cities" reports that homes in areas where shopping and social destinations are in walking distance command anywhere from $4,000 to $34,000 more than homes that aren’t.
The study measures a neighborhood’s walkability by the Walk Score algorithm. The more consumer destinations within walking distance of a home, the higher the walk score. Walk scores range from 0 to 100. Get the Walk Score for your Salem Oregon home.
