NAR’S Survey Confirms Preference for Walkable Communities

July 13, 2023

The National Association of REALTORS® has been conducting the Community & Transportation Preferences Survey for 20 years and updates its findings every three years. The survey provides REALTORS® and their communities with valuable information on shifting American lifestyles and migration trends. NAR generates this survey and makes the results available to all.

A national poll conducted in April 2023, of 2,000 adults in the fifty-largest metro areas, found that coming out of the coronavirus pandemic demand for living in a walkable community remains robust and that some respondents are willing “to pay a lot more” to do so. Similarly, the majority of respondents prefer houses with small yards and more walkability over homes with large yards and more driving.
