Walkability scores have become increasingly more popular and more sought-after features when it comes to the home-buying process. Colorado is no snub when it comes to these ever-so-elusive walk scores with over 38% of Denver residents living in an area with a walk score over 70 - wow! With all this Colorado sunshine and rocky mountain views it's no wonder there has been an influx in Denver's population.  


Denver's Highest Walkability Areas:

- LoDo (Let's Party!)

- The Golden Triangle (Home of the Denver Art Museum)

-   Capitol Hill

- Rino District


Sure, walkability may not be at the top of your list right now, but take a look at some of these fun facts provided by [liveurbandenver.com] and see if we can't get increase the importance of getting outside and leaving those car keys at home! 

  • Cars are the leading cause of climate change - duh! 

  • The average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 7 pounds less than your average Colorado resident - we've all heard you say you could lose a few around the waist! 

  • Any added point of WalkScore adds up to $3k to the value of your home - woah! That can add up quick!

  • Studies have proven 10 minutes in the car on your daily commute decreases your community involvement and activity level by 10%.


Come see for yourself - there's some great properties in these high WalkScore neighborhoods. I'll meet you there, and who knows, maybe we will go for  walk!
