Kauai Home for Sale
“Walkability has become a buzzword in real estate, as environmentalists and “green” planners advocate compact residential neighborhoods near businesses and public transportation. And some realtors say in this difficult market, houses with high walkability scores are easier to sell: Owners can save money by walking to mass transit, and by using less gas when running errands”, says Matt Lerner of Walk Score Blog.
I think this "walkscore" application is a great idea, however, Kauai's terrain and infrastructure just doesn't provide for a walkable solution. Kauai is NOT like the mainland...Buyers just need to come to terms with that!!
