Apr 17 2015 Philadelphia Ranks 4th

Philadelphia has ranked fourth in national walkscore ratings. The ranking has based the most walkable US cities with populations of more than 300,000. Walkability has become a major part of an almost cliched real estate idiom that means having a coffee shop and / or a park or other desired amenity equals value.It means that people live in a location that gains value from its real life proximity, time and aggravation saving nearness to things, people and local attractions that draw people.The strongest housing market is in walkable urban areas which is where the demand is.

The popularity of walkable neighborhoods is also reflected in real estate listings. Many online major residential real estate services even routinely includes “walk scores” in its listings, my website includes walkability rating. Most real estate agents are quick to point out what is within walking distance of a property. We always talk about proximity noting that walkable neighborhoods are appealing to all demographics from young professionals to empty nesters.

Walkable urban areas feature cultural amenities such as museums, libraries, shopping, restaurants, hotels, bars and different types of housing...Philadelphia has several highly desirable walkable neighborhoods. Take a look at the most walkable listings in the city.
