Drive Score: Find a perfect neighborhood
Why Drive Score Matters
Some homes are simply located in an area where restaurants, libraries, grocery stores, hospitals and other businesses are easier to get to by car. Less than a mile may be a comfortable walk for a New Yorker, but for a Los Angeles resident, they may have to cross a freeway on foot in that mile, which is not convenient at all. With Drive Score, buyers can see how close establishments are by car…and more than a mile away can still be a simple five or ten minute drive.
Not all homes are located in an area where your feet can get you to the local grocery or pharmacy comfortably. At Fizber.com we felt that affordable homes in more secluded - and yet still desirable - areas were being overlooked. It is really very important for home buyers to be aware of nearby infrastructure to make their choice. There aren't many people who would like to live near airport or railway taking into consideration the noise produced. Meanwhile these homes might be pretty interesting for people who travel a lot as they will definitely save money on getting to the airport or railway station.
Drive Score also shows hospitals, gas stations, airports, train stations and a variety of shopping stores located within a particular neighborhood. Directions are available by clicking on any icon shown on the Google map. When making a search, homebuyers can also switch off Drive Score parameters they don't need, so they will get Drive Score results adjusted to their requirements.
