Savings: Proximity to services may increase the price of a home. If you live near good transport connections, you may not need a car at all or one car may be enough for your family. This reduces the costs of mobility.
Remember this: Demand for homes is often higher near services and city centres, which can make homes harder to find and more expensive.
Reducing your carbon footprint: A work journey that is ten kilometres shorter reduces your carbon footprint by 4% per year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of 40,000 carbon footprints per year. A shorter drive to work reduces fuel costs.
