Easy access to work, schools, shopping and entertainment is essential: Buyers want to envision their daily commutes, errands and schedules lived out in your house.
Create a supplemental listing sheet that situates your house on a map and shows access to public transit, highway access, main local routes, schools, and key amenities like grocery stores, neighborhood shopping and parks.
Include the WalkScore ( a ranking of walking convenience for daily activities) and a printout of WalkScore amenities.
Each one point increase in a WalkScore delivered $500 to $3,000 more in home value than comparable houses with lower WalkScores, according to that company’s research. Even houses with mixed WalkScores – close to some daily amenities but within a short drive of others – earn higher values in the WalkScore metric.
