Walkability Explained in One Image
Did anyone else see this infographic this week?
I'm grateful for Sightline making this graphic because it clearly illustrates a point I try to make with all of my clients.
I know I'm biased, because I'm city dweller, but walkability is a huge reason I live in the city. I want to be upstairs from a great bar, have great coffee on my walk to work and groceries available while i'm cooking at home. My car is for work, not for daily errands. Now this doesn't mean that the city is always easy to navigate, but it clearly shows the beauty of a grid. Suburbs are great for getting more space and quiet enjoyment of the neighborhood. What you gain in square footage and yard you sacrifice in walkability.
What's the most important thing to you? My knowledge of Greater Seattle's neighborhoods/towns (urban and suburban) on a block by block basis is a big reason why you should hire me for your next search or purchase. I can make sure that you are close to the things you want.
What do you prefer? City? Suburb? Let me know, I'd love to talk to you about the PNW.
Hopefully the city doesn't make you feel this way.
