With Australia focusing more and more on better living for our health, environment and economy, walk scores are gaining popularity, especially with home buyers, investors and tenants alike.
Here at Professionals Real Estate Wagga Wagga, and all Professionals real estate offices across the country, we now offer a walk-score for all residential properties for sale and lease in Wagga Wagga and the Riverina.
In short, a walk score is a rating between 0 and 100 measuring the walkability of a city, neighbourhood or address. Walk scores are determined by the number of businesses, parks, public transport facilities and recreational activities located within walking distance of any given starting point.
The purpose of a walk-score is to promote walkable neighbourhoods and to provide you with the simplest solutions for the environment, our health and our economy. Areas with high walk-scores, and more community facilities located within walking distance, will give you an alternative to driving the car. Local parks will hopefully encourage you to play more and provide great outdoor space for your kids.
Walk scores have been around for some time, and are gaining more and more popularity as we begin to examine our lifestyles and the choices we make. By including these on our website, we aim to inform you as much as possible about the area you’re considering living in.
Not only will you find a walk score for each property on our Professionals website, you’ll also see a number of community facilities such as local businesses, schools, grocery stores and parks listed and highlighted on a map, including the distance from your starting point. If you’re new to the area and unfamiliar with what facilities are available, then it’s a great opportunity to find out.
Below you’ll find a brief explanation for what each rating means.
