What is an ADU?
Why Build an ADU?
- Rental Income – Rent out the ADU or move into the ADU and rent out the main house.
- Ease of Financing – Use the equity in your home to build the ADU, rent it out, and make additional income.
- Multi-Generational Family Living – Allow family members to stay in the ADU, keeping them close, while giving them independence.
- Extra Space – Use the ADU for that extra space you need.
The Benefits of Having an ADU
An ADU adds value to your property. You are essentially adding square footage to your residence at a cost that is less than the value you’ll gain. New laws have recently passed in California allowing homeowners to build an ADU and a Junior ADU on their property. This means that you could rent out the main residence or ADU to one family and the Junior ADU to someone looking for a studio apartment. You could potentially have multiple rental incomes from one property! Whether you plan to live in the ADU or not, the potential for rental income makes having an ADU, or two, worth it.
