The accessible home market is an incredibly underserved and largely ignored marketplace in real estate today, even though there an estimated 49 million (1 in 5) people in the United States with a disability, and each disability also affects their family and friends. Additionally, an average 7,000 people will turn 65 every day from now through 2030 and they are living longer.
This course will demystify accessibility as it relates to real estate. You’ll receive practical information as we shed light on the impact accessible housing choices have on the seller and buyer side of a transaction. We’ll discuss what makes a non-accessible property adaptable or modifiable, and teach you how accessibility features can add value to a property. We’ll review the NWMLS Accessibility Input Sheet (Form 6B) from the listing and buyer’s agent perspective and give examples of both. Lastly, we’ll have a fun and open discussion around disability etiquette that will give you tips on positively interacting with people with disabilities.
Topics of Discussion:
- What is Disability?
- Why should Accessibility Matter to Me?
- What Does it Mean for Your Real Estate Business?
- How to List and Find Accessible Properties
- Working with Clients with a Disability
