Should You Invest in An Additional Dwelling Unit?

November 9, 2019

Home owners are wondering if they should now take advantage of the recent rise in demand for multi-dwelling residences an undergo an Interior Home Renovation. Whether its boomerang kids back from college, a need for privacy when family visits, or a desire to generate income to offset the cost of increasing your home’s value, it is worth considering what you could do to mitigate home improvement cost and increase your home’s usage, enjoyment and market value.

ADU’s are Big Money Makers

Always work with a Realtor to identify competitive properties to assess the value of your home as it is today, and to establish what impact the ADU – Additional Dwelling Unit would have on the value of your home. Every region is different, but most find that the investment is worth it, especially if your intention is to rent the unit. Rents are high and with little to no and poor-quality housing options for renters, people are looking for safety, security, aesthetics and overall value when signing leases. Even if the new unit is for personal use, the added value to your home could match or even exceed the cost of creating it.

Confirm Requirements for your Permitting Process

Different zoning laws have different requirements, so be sure to work with your local authorities to understand the permitting process and zoning regulations so that you have a realistic estimate of your timeline. You may find that floor area or open space in general is affected by these laws, and approvals may take a few rounds of revising. Some jurisdictions lag behind others, but for the most part, major roadblocks to building ADU’s in the state of CA have been lifted, creating new interest.

The Functionality of Space Changes Over Time

One way to really get the most value out of your ADU is to make it as flexible a space as possible. When planning for your space, take into account what the future may hold for you. If you are building out an ADU for your boomerang college graduate, should it be on the ground floor so that it can be utilized in the future as an in-law suite? Should the kitchen space be easily hidden behind a beautiful barn door so that it can become more of a media room or office later on?
