Interest in “WALKABILITY” is becoming a worldwide phenomenon. More and more, home buyers looking in Hamilton Ontario are going to be searching for houses located in communities that are walkable or have good transit links.

A recent survey conducted on behalf of the Ontario Real Estate Association showed that 80% of young Ontarians (ages 18-34) say proximity to work is an important factor when they are planning on moving and purchasing real estate, whether that be a condo apartment, a detached home, or townhouse. First-time buyers and people relocating should be especially interested in how this will affect resale values. They will be looking for neighborhoods within walking distance or easy transit distance to the place they work, the places they shop and the places they go for entertainment.


How do you find out if a home you are interested in or the

neighborhood you are considering is Walkable?

  
Walkscore Cities & Neighbourhoods Houses Homes Community Real EstateThere's an online tool called
“Walk Score”.

Walk Score is a number between 0 and 100 that measures the walkability of any address.

Walk Score awards points based on the distance from a property to amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, shops, and schools.

The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) has started including walkability values on each of the MLS - listed properties on REALTOR.ca. The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce commissioned a study in 2012 to determine if there is a correlation between walkability, economic development and job creation in Hamilton.

The conclusion of the report stated that walkable neighborhoods and also those with good transit links attracted creative industries and clusters of businesses. A perfect example is James Street North in downtown Hamilton. It has a Walk Score of 93 = Walkers Paradise! It is fast becoming the creative hub of Hamilton and is home to many Artists, fabulous restaurants and probably most known for SUPERCRAWL (For more pictures and information on past Supercrawl Events  Click Here )
