Enterprises TV on the Resurgence of Walkable Neighborhoods

There could be many reasons why people want to build or buy home in a smaller, walkable community. Enterprises TV takes a look at the resurgence of the walkable neighborhood.

Ideally, the perfect place to live would have nice weather year-round, grocery and other stores nearby and all be within walking distance. But in reality, we live a few miles from the business establishments we patronize.  The love consumers had with their cars is waning – thanks to higher maintenance costs, gas prices and longer commutes to work. The re-entry of neighborhoods where getting to and from regular establishments is experiencing a resurgence across America. A survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors found that more than half of the respondents prefer homes withy smaller yard and shorter commutes, and would buy a smaller home if it meant an easy walk to schools, stores, and restaurants.

The Enterprises TV show also notes that economic uncertainty makes life troublesome. People want to believe they can get a good job, keep the good job, and be able to get to and from that job without spending too long in a vehicle. If we can find affordable homes which are within easy walking distances to the places we visit often, we will strongly consider those areas desirable. Walkable neighborhoods are making a comeback.
