Just a little above San Diego County, the community of Murrieta (in Riverside County) has passed a law requiring developers to make 15% of new for-sale and rental units accessible to the elderly and disabled. Builders estimate that this “universal design” requirement will add $800 to $5,000 per home in extra costs.

Those in favor of this idea say the adaptations, which include wider doorways and lower cabinets, will appeal not only to the aging baby boomer population but to everyone.  Eighty-eight percent of those who buy homes with universal design features are able-bodied but want the convenience of a spacious interior that can accommodate guests with differing abilities.[tags]real estate, San Diego real estate, accessible housing, San Diego County[/tags] San Diego County real estate agents

  1. So how bad is it? I hear all these ramblings, fancy financial terms and so on. But what does it all really mean? Does the US collapse? Do we see soup lines and down trodden people like the experience was during the Great Depression? Seems to me the US financial catastrophe is pretty simple. Our government and the citizens of the US have consistently spent more than they take in. At some point the debt becomes so great we are unable to pay it back, or manage it. When we are no longer able to pay our debts what happens? Do we surrender assets, land and military hardware to the foreign nationals we’ve been burrowing money from over the last two decades? Maybe a fire sale of America? The whole system is a sham and we only have ourselves and those shysters in Wall Street and the Scum of Washington DC to blame..Sorry to say but, neither McCain, Clinton nor Obama will be able to save us from this SNAFU. The concept of uncontrolled spending and deficit through credit has finally caught up with us. This decade is perhaps a time for reckoning in which our short sighted ways and embrace of Wall Street’s psychopathic free market capitalism garnered by greed and unequaled corruption will finally get the best of us..

  2. Mark my words, either Obama or Clinton will win – and the legal changes they bring will force a more equitable distribution of wealth AND risk. First, rebuild the social safety net, shredded by decades of rightwing mismanagement. Second, better govt regulation will bring more centralized control back over the markets. As time goes on, the federal govt will reassert its rightful authority over more sectors of the economy, and we will march together into a brighter future for our children!
