Real estate Web sites with more than 80 million online listings — inlcuding Zillow.com, ZipRealty.com and Postlets.com — will provide a "Walk Score" with each property using an application that automatically scores the walkability of each home’s surrounding neighborhood.

In announcing the partnership with real estate Web sites, Seattle-based "civic software" developer Front Seat said the company hopes a property’s Walk Score will rank right up with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in a home in importance.
