A walk score is a rating of distance from a home to amenities that are within walking distance. I would imagine that the entire city of Long Beach has a relatively high walk score considering its density.

Most Listings are selling within 30 days with multiple offers. There are still plenty of buyers out there. I noticed a slight slow down but for the most part the market is moving steadily.

A walk score is, quite simply, a numeric measure of how much you can walk to from a given home. A high walk score indicates that you can walk to many shops and locations. A low walk score would indicate that you pretty much have to get in the car for everything you want to do.

Take care.

Here are Walk Score’s definitions for its various values:

90–100 – Walker’s Paradise (Errands do not need a vehicle.)

70–89 – Very Walkable (Most errands can be done on foot.)

50–69 – Somewhat Walkable (Some errands can be done on foot.)

25–49 – Car-Dependent (Most errands need a vehicle.)

0–24 – Car-Dependent (Almost all errands need to be done by car.)

A walk score is measuring the distance from the property to restaurants, coffee shops, retail shopping, markets, banks, etc. Hope this helps.

A Walk Score is simply an attempt to quantify how "walker friendly" a particular home is. The higher the number, the more likely you'll be able able to walk to shops, restaurants, and services. The lower the number, the more likely you'll have to get in your car to get around.
