Walk Score® is THE international measure of walkability! More than 20,000 websites use Walk Score® and it generates over nine million scores each day. Walkability is very important to listing agents in promoting the location of properties for sale and to buyers' agents in finding the appropriate properties for their clients.
Where available, Transit Scores display on the Walk Score® window.
A Walk Score® appears on every active listing in connectMLS™ with a link to walkscore.com where a wealth of other information regarding commute times and nearby amenities awaits.
