Some of the most common “must-haves” that we hear time and again from our clients when looking for a new home include: good schools, nearby amenities, and a modern kitchen/living room. Accessibility may not be top of mind when thinking about your next move.
Features that are safe, accessible, and can accommodate a variety of wants and needs are often not considered during the buying and selling process, but we think they should be!
If you are wondering if home accessibility is something to think about during your real estate journey, consider these questions:
-Do you have elderly relatives?
-Do you, or any of your friends and family have mobility challenges?
-Are you looking for your forever home and want a place you can see your family living for years to come?
-Have you ever struggled to juggle grocery bags while carrying a toddler up a flight of stairs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, accessible living is something that should be top of mind for you and your family.
