How Walk Score Works
Every home you see listed on Realtor.ca or MLS has a walk score. This number measures the walkability of any address. Here's what the numbers mean:
0-24 Car Dependent - Almost all errands require a car.
25-49 Car Dependent - A few amenities within walking distance.
50-69 Somewhat Walkable - Some amenties within walking distance.
70-89 Very Walkable - Most errands can be accomplished on foot.
90-100 Walker's Paradise - Daily errands do not require a car.
This number can help out of town buyers know where a home is situated in respect to commonly visited shops, restaurants, grocery stores etc. From there they can decide if that area would be suitable for the lifestyle they want to live.
