I think that if you really upgrade it, and make it a lot better than it was before, than this is a great option to consider. With that being said though, there is a possibility that it will be looked at as a 'downgrade' in the future. If you only have a walk-in shower, it won't be considered a full bathroom, and you may lose a bit on the sale. I think you really need to consider how long you'll be in this house. If you're going to be there for a while, you shouldn't focus too much on the resale, and do what you need to to make yourself as comfortable in that place as possible.

There is a program available for low income Brevard residents through the LIHEAP program. You can get the information by contacting Brevard Housing and Human Services. This is a federally funded program which provides, among other things, Weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs.

2. Who is eligible to receive LIHEAP assistance?

The LIHEAP program in your community determines if your household income qualifies for the program. You must fall into one of these categories:
ELDERLY - Must be at least sixty (60) years old.
DISABLED - Must be receiving disability benefits from either Social Security or employer/insurance disability benefits.
HOUSEHOLDS WITH CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF FIVE (5) - Must provide birth certificates for children five (5) years old or younger.

3. What is the Income Guidelines?

(At or below 125% of the Health & Human Services Poverty Income Guidelines)

For more information:

Best of Luck
