A New Kind of Bike Tour: Selling Houses by Bike
In what appears to be a wholesale adoption of cycling by the mainstream press, including the business media, the Wall Street Journal today had an article about realtors taking clients around to houses by bicycle. Although there are clients who were cyclists and most concerned about accessbility to bike paths for commuting, there are others not used to cycling who enjoy doing this as a way to get a better feel for the market. The article points out that in Northern winters or for longer distances it probably doesn't work, but for a quick way to get a feel for a neighbourhood what could be better than cycling around it?
