Home ownership has been called The American Dream. And yet, while 7 out of 10 Americans are either directly impacted by a disability, or know someone who is, only 7 percent of all adults with disabilities are homeowners. What’s wrong with this picture?Fortunately, homeownership is beginning to grow among this segment of our population, encouraged by the development of special programs aimed at helping those with disabilities to finance a home. And why not? These families have the same qualifications and dreams as anyone else.
It’s just that their needs are different, and a trusted real estate professional can be an excellent resource in finding a home in a community that offers the features and benefits most suited to those needs. “Location, location, location” becomes even more critical when you factor in the need for proximity to special-education schools, medical facilities, accessible transportation and recreational activities.
When facing relocation to a new area, it can be overwhelming for almost anyone to discover information about these resources, but it’s an especially challenging search for the disabled and their families. Because of their involvement in the local community, active real estate agents have an insider’s knowledge of the resources and support available for families with special needs. When faced with the excitement and anxiety of such a move, turn to an experienced professional for assistance.
