Why Specialist Disability Accommodation

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is accommodation designed for people with extreme functional impairment or very high support needs and is provided to National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) members who meet specific criteria.

SDA housing contains features to assist residents live more independently whilst enabling additional support to be delivered more safely and effectively. The NDIS annually funds A$700 million for SDA but suppliers are not meeting the demand due to a shortage of suitable accommodation.

An estimated A$5 billion is required to meet the NDIS housing objectives for participants of SDA. This has inspired private investors who are keen to help support this critical SDA accommodation issue.

It’s important that SDA providers satisfy the needs and changing requirements of the occupants and ensure that improvements to their independence are strived for. Crucially, these homes need to meet the diverse and often evolving needs of their occupants throughout their lives.

An estimated 50,000 NDIS participants will require SDA by 2030, but already current participant’s needs are going without because the existing disability housing needs redevelopment.

Freeman Realty are proud to support NDIS SDA participants and help them find a place they can call home, improve their quality of life and increase their independence.


Eligible NDIS SDA funding is provided for 20 years with the possibility of extension.

We’ll help you find the right investment properties, connect you with SDA approved builders, provide investment options and connect you with Housing Providers to manage tenant procurement.

Demand for Specialist Disability Accommodation

Throughout the next 8 years the expectation is for SDA demand to increase nearly five times the existing supply.

This does not consider the many existing dwellings that will need replacing over this period.

Investment in NDIS Housing

The Federal Government SDA program was formed to encourage private investment in brand-new NDIS housing for Australians with disabilities. SDA properties not only bring about positive social and ethical benefits but can provide up to 20% annual gross yield and long-term growth, making them tremendously attractive to Australian residential property investors.

The NDIS participant preferences and decisions are the key drivers of the SDA market which can lead to well-considered, innovative homes being created in locations that need them.

With our strong connections with owner-occupiers, property investors and fund managers, Freeman Realty are well-placed to help you create a rewarding SDA portfolio, tap into high rental yields, all whilst helping those in need of suitable housing.

SDA Funding Categories and Design Types

Improved Liveability

Housing with better physical access. It also has more features for people with sensory, intellectual or cognitive impairments. For example, you may need walls and floors that are very easy to see, living areas that mean your support workers can see you easily, or very few stairs in your home..


Housing that is very strong and durable, reducing the need for repairs and maintenance. The way it is built should make it safe for you and others. This type of design category may suit people who need help managing complex and challenging behaviours. We think about how often you currently cause property damage, and the extent of the damage.

Fully Accessible

Housing with a high level of physical access features for people who have lots of physical challenges. For example, you need to use a manual or powered wheelchair at home or can’t use steps.

High Physical Support

Housing that includes a high level of physical access for people who need very high levels of support. For example, you may need a ceiling hoist, backup power supply, or home automation and communication technology.


I was in the process of searching for my first investment property when I came across Con and Freeman Realty. My experience was positive and easy from the beginning. I felt at ease when being shown around the property in private – especially compared to the whirl-wind open houses I’d been attending with dozens of other potential buyers. Information and advice from Con was forthcoming and helpful. There was no pressure put on me and I was comfortable putting an offer forward through Con. It was through his advice and assistance I was successful in purchasing my first investment property.

Con Elfes made the sales process a smooth one and at all times had me well informed Con at all times was available to answer any queries and concerns I had during the sale of my home. His professionalism and patience was a standout and comforting during all aspects of listing and the marketing of my home.

5 Star Service Can not fault Con in any way. Very professional in all aspects. Listens to my opinions on what I wanted and always there to answer my questions and give his professional advice.
