While completely mobile now, in the future your parents might need built in aides to negotiate stairs, utilize a wheelchair or walker, maintain their balance, or get in and out of the tub. If you have very young children, maneuvering strollers and car seats in and out of your home benefit from some extra planning too.
Let your real estate professional know who will be living in the home. Address important issues during your search that might save costly future remodeling:
In addition to doorways and halls, the most difficult room to accommodate both younger and older residents is the bathroom. A home with at least two bathrooms can accommodate the different needs of your household.
Sometimes, you can't find a home that can accommodate your families needs. You may need financial help to remodel or update a home for a disabled or elderly family member. Several government agencies fund grants that may help cover renovation expenses, or the cost of equipment and supplies required to make a house fully accessible for your loved one.
Be sure to inform us, your real estate professional, about your accommodation needs at the outset of your home search. We will focus on the homes that best meet the needs of all those living in the home.
