The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) helps people with disabilities (PWD) to achieve their goals in life. It has various programs to support people with disabilities and their carers.
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a part of the NDIS scheme, which fulfils the housing needs of eligible NDIS participants. SDA under the NDIS scheme covers the bricks and mortar payments for rental properties for PWD who have a functional impairment and very high support needs.
Currently, there is a massive shortage of SDA housing in Australia. This opens an SDA market for investors, which gives higher returns than standard residential rental properties. SDA housing investment gives a high rental yield and it helps people with disabilities, who are in need of accommodation that is fit for purpose and gives them choice and control.
Disability Home Investment in QLD:
The federal government has pledged that the SDA under the NDIS scheme will continue for the next 20 years and have allocated $700M per annum to provide housing for eligible NDIS participants. Investors can confidently invest in NDIS property.
SDA gives long term profitable returns as the participants will generally be long-term tenants, as these homes, if they are built to high SDA standards will become their ‘forever home’.
The return on investment (ROI) in SDA depends on the location. Investing in NDIS homes in Queensland brings high yields. Investors get a regular income through three separate parts. These are SDA payment, the Commonwealth rent assistance, and Reasonable rent contribution from participant’s disability support pension. NDIS PROPERTY AUSTRALIA sells SDA properties that suit the needs of people with disability and fit the budget of investors.
Current Shortages Of Suitable Housing:
Suitable housing for PWD allows them to live more independently and it improves their mental health. There are however many people with SDA funding, or in the process of obtaining their SDA funding waiting for suitable homes.
Many of these people are living in inappropriate homes, nursing homes and hospitals. According to the survey data, six percent of the people with disability in Australia who receive funding under the NDIS (currently over 500,000) will qualify for SDA funding.
