The same way you would market any other home... by highlighting all its features, from bedrooms to garage spaces to handicap accessibilities. Even with fair housing laws that would prevent the home from being marketed specifically to a particular home buyer, why would you want to? You want an agent to draw every qualified buyer to the home! Every home needs proper market positioning and an agent who will be honest and fair about the value the market will place on it. And then that agent should to provide the home maximum exposure and get you your highest price possible.

The home which is handicapped accessible could be sold to any buyer. If he doesn't require the handicapped access he or she could make changes. Also people who are looking for that requirement could keep it the same way. The realtors would simply say that the house is handicapp accessible. Every buyer would come according to their needs of how many bdrms or bths they require. Thank you

Hi, The fact that the home is handicap accessible should be included in the homes list of amenities. You can't necessarily market it to handicap buyers but any that are looking for this type of home will find it because of the mention.

Consider working with an agent of your own, he/she can provide you with suitable properties, keep you updated as new listings arrive on the market, provide necessary information, schedule showings, etc.

Like any other home, it needs to be marketed and the plus points of the home need to be pointed out. Unfortunately you are not allowed to market it as being a good home for a handicapped person as that implies it is not suitable for other buyers, hence implied discrimination.
