Home features important to older home buyers

Real Estate Broker/Owner 01293735 CA

Now that I am getting older I realize there are many important features for older home buyers. My husband is disabled so these features and others are extra important to us.

1. Toilet near the bed since it is needed often at night

2. Some light a night to find your way around

3. Cupboards and closets that are easy to reach without ladders or crawling on the floor

4. Secure and safe neighborhood

5. Other elderly people so you can help each other

6. Garage close to kitchen for bringing in groceries

7. Table where you can watch TV while eating

8. Energy efficient home to keep the bills low

9. Low maintenance yard

10. Private areas o husband and wife can have their space away from each other

11.  Garbage each to take out to curb

12. Grab bars in bathrooms

13. Open large area for entertaining
