6 Benefits of Adding an ADU to Your Property
Have you wanted to add more space to your property? An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a second smaller living space on the same grounds as the main house and can provide extra space for you and others. ADU’s can be rooms above garages, smaller buildings in the backyard, fully furnished basements, and much more. Accessory dwelling units are an effective and affordable way to add space, function, and comfort to your home. Cities and counties are becoming more interested in their creation as ADUs increase the supply of affordable housing and can easily be rented out. Here are 6 benefits of adding an ADU to your property, along with information on how our home experts at Julz Corp can help!
1. Rental Unit to Earn Passive Income
You may be able to rent out your ADU and earn extra income. The regulations vary depending on where you live, so you’ll want to make sure to check with your city beforehand. If you’re thinking of building an ADU to rent out or use for your guests, reach our Julz Corp professionals!
2. Increased Property Value
ADU’s benefit both you and others as well. ADU’s not only increase property value, but they are also affordable and don’t require you to purchase additional land or infrastructure. If you’re thinking about increasing your property value by adding more living space to your property, then building an ADU is the best option for you.
3. Use as a Guest Space
An extra living space makes sense for both lifestyle and financial reasons. While many people live in their homes for decades, their needs change over time. Whether you’re housing your in-laws, kids, extended family, or friends, an accessory dwelling unit will give both you and your guests just the right amount of privacy.
4. Low-Cost Housing for Senior Family Members & Caretakers
As of January 1st, 2021, the California Health and Safety Code (HSC), Section 65583(c)(7), requires that counties and cities develop a plan to incentivize ADUs so they can be offered as affordable rent for low to moderate-income families. If you think renting out an ADU is something that might be beneficial for you and others, speak to one of our Julz Corp builders.
5. Use for Young Adults & College Graduates
The personal space that an ADU will allow young adults or college graduates to stay close while remaining independent. Whether you have teen kids who want their own space or young college graduates who wish to be independent but don’t have the means to move away from home yet, then ADU’s are the perfect alternative.
6. The Ultimate Home Office or Workout Space
Are you thinking about creating a home gym or office but don’t want it to be directly in your house? ADU’s are a great option to provide space and privacy for all family members. Whether you want to blast music during your workout or need peace and quiet while working, ADU’s provide the added space you need to live comfortably on your property.
