Walkable communities are getting more attention from homebuyers who crave the lifestyle. In addition to convenience, these places offer unexpected benefits to our health, environment, finances, and communities.
Some 56 percent of millennials and 46 percent of boomers prefer walkable communities with a range of housing amidst local businesses and public services. We’re certainly seeing this trend around Dallas, particularly Uptown and surrounding neighborhoods. One of our favorites there is the Residences at the Stoneleigh, which gets a Walk Score of 86, meaning it is highly walkable.
