    ADU’S ARE BECOMING STANDARD IN CALIFORNIA

    ADU’s changed the landscape of California Real Estate. Commonly referred to as backhouses, guest house, granny units, or apartments, Accessory Dwelling Units have become standard in California. If you’re selling or refinancing your home, appraisers may reduce the value of your property if comparable sales have an ADU and yours does not.

    On September 27, 2016, California State legislature passed and approved AB 2299, Ch 735 to amend S 65852.2, which went into effect January 2017. It was meant to create additional housing especially in urban and suburban markets.

    BENEFITS OF AN ADU

    Accessory Dwelling Units benefit the property owner in several ways. First, it increases the size of your home. For example, a 1,600 square foot 3 bedroom 2 bath home that converts its garage becomes a 2,000 sq ft 4 bedroom 3 bath home. The increase in size immediately adds to your property value. This is especially beneficial when obtaining financing or selling the home.

    ADU’s are often used for monthly and AirBNB rental income. A 400 square foot garage conversion ADU studio apartment may generate $1,500 per month. Some of our 1,200 square foot ADU’s are fetching over $4,000 per month. That extra rental income may come in handy in today’s rising cost of living.

    ADU’s are fantastic guest houses, transition housing for independent teenage children or simply a personal retreat. Whatever purpose you have, Accessory Dwelling Units are tremendously beneficial.
