If your shoes are made for walking, then you are not alone. A recent survey by the National Association of REALTORS® revealed that 60 percent of homeowners prefer communities surrounded by restaurants, shops and parks, all close enough to reach without driving.
Survey respondents would rather have a shorter commute than a larger home. The quality of the neighborhood was more important than the size of the home for 78 percent of those surveyed; and 57 percent would be happy with a smaller yard if it meant shorter commutes.
These results are no surprise to anyone living in The Waters, where Pike Road, Alabama homes are only minutes from restaurants, grocery stores, churches and more.
