Can Trails Help You Sell Your Home?

One of my most read posts here on Nichole Gets Green is "I Want Trails" where I looked at trails and their impact on how quickly a home sold. This was on my mind last week when I spent the morning walking around Daybreak, a community near my home with walking trails and many outdoor activities. That day was stressful for me initially, I could have easily  told myself I didn't have time to take a walk, and yet somehow getting outside using time I felt I shouldn't be taking turned the whole day around for me. In my opinion this is one of the most important aspects when looking for your home, where it is located..the neighborhood, the community, and the opportunities to get outside. Home to me is a safe place that makes your life better, makes you happy more days than not, and improves your quality of life. I still believe trails and parks being nearby in most cases will get your home sold more quickly. On that note, I decided to revisit the facts, are homes still selling more quickly with trails nearby in this new "hotter" market?
