What is ADA compliance and why does it apply to your real estate website?
An ADA-compliant website is designed for everybody and meets the standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design. It should allow those with all disabilities to use your website in a way that works for them. The basis for ADA compliance is the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.
Although non-compliant websites are not technically illegal, if an individual with disabilities comes across your website and is unable to access certain features of it, they can sue on the basis of the ADA. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) supports the push for real estate agents and brokers to make their websites compliant in order to avoid litigation.
