According to the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention, 61 million adults in the United States are living with a disability. That’s one in four Americans, or 26 percent of the adult population. For individuals over age 65, that ratio climbs to two out of every five persons.

To better serve these buyers, real estate professionals must understand the challenges people with disabilities face when operating in the housing market.
