    Barrier Free Home resource

    My wife and I have a barrier free carriage home in Southwest Florida that has just been posted for sale on Barrier Free Home website: https://www.barrierfreehome.com/acce...php?a=2&b=1952

    The Plantation at Somerset gated community has accessible sidewalks on both sides of the streets with easy to navigate curb cuts, outdoor activities, fitness center and beautiful ponds, lakes and nature preserves. It?s conveniently located to restaurants, shops, grocery and medical facilities. For those that like baseball, this accessible property is within 2 miles of the Boston Red Sox spring training camp.

    I?m a C6 complete injury and we built this unit with accessibility in mind without sacrificing the astetics and beauty of the condominium home. There are no steps and the master bath has a large roll-in shower.

    We have recently moved and this property is now available. Keep in mind... average winter temperatures in Southwest Florida are mid 70?! Visit the link and contact Joe Simone for questions. His contact info is listed on the Barrier Free Home website.
    If you think that you can or if you feel you can't, either way your right.

          $322/month paid QUARTERLY = $966/quarter, not per month. Pretty reasonable esp. as it covers cable and water too. You couldn't get into a studio condo in Southern California for twice this ($255,900!!!!). I believe there is also a property tax deferment for those with tetraplegia in Florida ($5918 for this unit in 2018).

            Math is hard, and you'd have to be financially illiterate to live in California (just sayin')

            Master Assoc. Fee: $788
            Mstr. Assoc. Fee Freq: Quarterly
            Condo Fee: $965
            Condo Fee Freq: Quarterly
            HOA FEE: $322/month

            (788x4)+(965x4)+(322x12)=10876

            10876/12=906/month

                That surely is attractive. Any determination regarding FL exemptions statute/chapter 196.012, where the state says that:

                "Gross income specifically does not include payments made for the medical care of the individual, return of principal on the sale of a home, social security benefits, or public assistance payments payable to the person or assigned to an organization designated specifically for the support or benefit of that person."


                But seems to include SS payments as part of gross income limitations for para-grade cripples. At least according to a number of FL County Assessor websites I have visited


                SSDI and random passive income streams would kill the exemption if they actually do count SS payments as gross income, in contradiction to statute. Any clarifying info out there?

                      I don't think FL has much of a real estate tax benefit /exemption for Para's ...could be wrong. I wonder if they are only state that has property tax/exemption for quads great perk if you qualify
