In an essay titled, "How Atlanta's greater emphasis on biking impacts the housing market," Coldwell Banker broker Charlotte Sears says proximity to biking and walking trails is at premium like never before, from Decatur to Marietta and beyond. To support her point, Sears calls upon studies from Denmark to Cincinnati, where homebuyers were willing to pay $9,000 more to live within 1,000 feet of trails. The research doesn't exist yet, Sears says, but surely the premiums paid by Beltline Mania Neighborhoods (our description, not hers) would trounce those numbers. [Atlanta Business Chronicle.
