Walkable and Mixed Use Neighborhoods Most Important to Home Buyers

Walkable New Orleans Neighborhoods

Walkable New Orleans Neighborhoods

Or that’s what the survey says, anyway.

According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2013 Community Preference Survey, 60 percent of respondents favor a neighborhood with a mix of houses, stores, and other businesses that are within walking distance, rather than neighborhoods requiring driving between home, work, and recreation. Respondents indicated that while the size of a home or yard does matter, most are willing to compromise size for a preferred neighborhood and less commuting.

It’s a good thing that so many of our New Orleans neighborhoods provide exactly what people say they are looking for. A move back to more urban living is sweeping the country and New Orleans has some fabulous choices in homes that fit the bill.
