Urban Sprawl to Urban Stay: Walkable Housing Is Making a Comeback

Our country was built on sprawling. We’d settle in one area and build settlements outward. And after World War II, people moved in droves to the suburbs. Urban sprawl continued through the latter half of the 20th century, but now a growing number of people are choosing to stick in and around city centers. While there are a lot of reasons people choose to live in metropolitan areas, one key factor has drawn a lot of attention in the real estate world: walkability. While sprawl allowed many people to buy their own home, it often limited families to driving to the grocery store, school, work, and activities. Now, people that opt for walkable neighborhoods can use their own two feet to get to and from all these places. Read on to learn how walkable urban places are having a comeback moment.
