If you’ve heard the buzz lately about walkable communities and wondered what exactly that means, you’re not alone. Walkable communities are a growing trend in real estate for a number of reasons. A walkable community is a neighborhood (or even a town or city) where residents can easily and safely walk to parks, stores, pharmacies, restaurants and libraries (to name a few). Walkable communities often feature extra wide walkways and sidewalks, ample lighting for nighttime walking, plenty of benches for rest and other features to ensure pedestrian safety.
As a growing trend, you can expect to see more and more emphasis in the coming years on walkable communities. The Grand Strand is an area with a lot of new home construction and new community development in-progress and in planning stages. Currently, the best local example of a walkable community is The Market Common. With housing available directly in the shopping district and in neighborhoods surrounding it, the Market Common offers much of what you would find in a walkable community. The Market Common area features parks, restaurants, shops, fitness options, all different kinds of businesses, doctor and dentist offices and even a movie theater. Take a stroll through the area and you’ll quickly see why walkable communities are a growing trend.
