Demand for Walkable Neighborhoods is on the Rise

In the June issue of The Atlantic, author Christopher Leinberger discusses the rise in demand for walkable neighborhoods around the country.  Here on the Charleston Peninsula and in a few other neighborhoods around the area – we ARE walkable and have been since inception, thus I suspect the demand for homes around here will rise.  These neighborhoods have experienced much...
