Realtor.org | The 2011 Community Preference Survey


By

“The 2011 Community Preference Survey reveals that, ideally, most Americans would like to live in walkable communities where shops, restaurants, and local businesses are within an easy stroll from their homes and their jobs are a short commute away; as long as those communities can also provide privacy from neighbors and detached, single-family homes. If this ideal is not possible, most prioritize shorter commutes and single-family homes above other considerations.”

    Has anyone ever seen a walkable community which is composed of privacy-preserving, detached single-family homes? I doubt that these two goals are compatible with each other. Survey results need not be self-consistent, unfortunately.

      The survey is interesting as a measure of changing attitudes about walking, neighborhoods and home sizes. Thousands of pre-automobile neighborhoods were single family and walkable. They pretty much had to be.
