Benefits Of Building Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
There are many benefits to building ADUs, including:
Extra Space For Family Members Or Guests
If your family is growing or you frequently have guests staying with you, an ADU can provide the extra space you need. You may also turn it into a home office, gym, or other bonus room.
Create A Passive Income Stream
If you rent out your ADU, you can create a passive income stream that can help offset your mortgage payments or other expenses. This can be a great way to become financially independent. Typically, ADUs have a separate entrance, kitchen, and bathroom, so tenants will have privacy and not need to enter your home.
Like any other type of home improvement, building an ADU will add to the equity in your home. This is especially helpful if you ever need to take out a loan or want to sell your home in the future.
Get More Use Out Of Your Property
An ADU can make better use of your property by adding extra living space. If you build an ADU on unused land, you're effectively increasing the value of your property without having to buy a new one.
A Way To Age In Place
If you're seeking to downsize but stay in your home as you age, an ADU can be a perfect solution. You can move into your ADU and rent out your main home or have a family member move into the ADU so they can be close by if you need assistance.
