Looking for neighborhood information - Drive Score & Walk Score are good options.

Imagine moving into your dream home and then finding out that you moved to a location that is in the middle of nowhere. There are no options nearby to walk to the store and your favorite food market is on the other side of town. It is not uncommon for a home buyer to research local real estate markets on the internet. As I was searching the internet for helpful real estate tools for my clients I came across two websites that will come in handy during your home search: Drive Score: Simply enter your new address (or a home you or interested in buying) and Drive Score will give you a map with local establishments and their driving distance from that address. http://drivescore.fizber.com/ Walk Score: Simply enter your new address (or a home you or interested in buying) and Walk Score will give you a map with local establishments and the walking distance from that address. http://www.walkscore.com/

Love it...thank you for sharing! The website www.postlets.com, also provides these scores, but they're not always accurate if an area has experienced a great deal of commercial build up recently.  Thanks again!
