Six out of 10 people would spend more on a home so they can live in a walkable neighborhood. That’s just one stat showing the increase in people who want to live in communities with easy access to shopping, restaurants, and parks, according to NAR’s 2017 Community and Transportation Preferences Survey.

The survey also found that more than half of respondents would be willing to live in a house with a small yard if they could walk to more places, versus a house similar in size with a larger yard and less walkability. In addition, more than half said they would prefer to live in an apartment or townhome instead of a detached home if that meant they could easily walk to places or commute to work.
