Accessible homes, our guide on how to find them and what is available right now!

Are you looking to buy, sell or let your property?

As household budgets are squeezed with higher mortgage rates and cost of living pressures, we’re looking into the market conditions in general.We are also discussing in detail of course, our specialism, accessible properties.

We have our updated guide on how to find accessible proprties and are delighted to promote for the third year running, with our friends at Disability Horizons our ‘Guide to finding an accessible home 2023′.

Ironically, the accessible housing market is not particularly ‘accessible’ and can be difficult to navigate without spending a lot of time collecting information and research. Luckily for you, we have done all the hard work and compiled over a decade’s-worth of combined experience to create this guide which you can find at the bottom of this article.

Our Guide

Our 17-page guide will give you a comprehensive overview of everything you need to know to help you find that new accessible home – from start to finish. We will help you to understand the housing market and available accessibility features, adaptations and their costs, and give you practical and straight-forward advice on how to find a property that suits your needs, whether you’re buying or renting.

Below, we are going to explore the state of the housing market now, where house prices are at, explore predictions for the immediate future and consider tips for those of you wanting to find a home now.

Market Conditions

Nationwide building society’s latest house price index for February records a 1.1% year-on-year decrease in values, with prices down 0.5% month-on-month. This is the sixth monthly fall in a row, and it leaves prices 3.7% below their peak, recorded in August 2022, when the market was at its height following the pandemic slump.

While financial market conditions normalised some time ago, housing market activity has remained subdued. This likely reflects the lingering impact on confidence as well as the cumulative impact of the financial pressures that have been weighing on households for some time.”

However, that said, with the challenges of finding accessible properties that promote inclusive and independent living, it is hard to put a value on the right place. We know this by the huge waiting list we have waiting for suitable housing. Perhaps now is the right time to buy after all? If you’re a first-time buyer, you can take advantage of a slower moving market which means, things do stick around for a bit longer.

Equally, if you’re selling at what you perceive to be a lower price than you’d hoped, this is all relative of course, as the property you’ll be buying, will likely to be cheaper.

  1. Thanks so much. ‘Fortunately?’ I haven’t been in a rush, but I am aware clock is ticking and trying to find a property that ticks all the essential needs and is accessible has been a nightmare!
    Thanks for staying in touch
