When The Buyer Backs Out: Real Estate Sales Solutions

The first time I sold a house, I had no idea that the buyer could back out of the contract partway through. I was taken aback when it happened to me, and my real estate agent had to explain the process of terminating the contract and requesting the earnest deposit. After the contract was terminated, I spent a lot of time researching why a buyer could back out of a sale, what I could do about it as the seller, and ways to minimize the risk of it happening. I created this site to share what I've learned in the hopes of preventing other homeowners from experiencing what I did. I hope it helps you to be better prepared as you sell your home.

2 Things That Will Make Your New Home More Wheelchair Accessible

When you are in a wheelchair, finding a house that will suit your needs isn't always as easy as it sounds. There are a lot of things that can make a house not work for you, including things like bathroom design, flooring choices, and how many stories the house has. One way to make sure that you get the house that will best suit your needs is to work with a builder that can help you design a house from the ground up and build a house that will work for you. 


If your lot has limited space, you may not be able to have a house that is all one story. You may just not have the spread room. If you need to have more than one story, it's still possible to make a house that is wheelchair accessible. The easiest way to do that is to have an elevator installed. Many people may worry about having an elevator put in because they may think that it's too much space out of a house. However, there are smaller elevators that are specifically designed to go in houses. Those elevators are generally just big enough for a wheelchair to fit in, generally about the size of a closet. Those elevators can run on pneumatics or hydraulics, so they tend to take up less space. 

Adjustable Counters

Another thing you can have a builder put in your new house are counters that you can adjust. Those are kitchen counters that are on a system that will let you raise or lower them, depending on who is using them. That's a good thing if not everyone in your house needs to use a wheelchair. But, being able to drop the counters down a couple of inches so that you can easily access them can make it much easier for you to do anything you may need to do. One drawback to using adjustable counters is that you can't put cabinets under them, so you may be sacrificing some storage space, but that will also make it easier for you to get close to the counters since you can slide your wheelchair under the counters easier. 

If you need a wheelchair, you may be tired of trying to make a house that doesn't quite meet your needs work for you. If you work with a custom builder, they can help you build a house that will meet all your needs. For more information, contact local professionals like Landmark Builders.
