Adding and ADU can provide positive cash flow and increase the value of your property on resale. If you are an owner occupant of your single-family residence, adding an ADU can provide positive cash flow that will become more valuable once you get to retirement age. If you are an investor who doesn’t live on the property, ADU's allows you to leverage that investment by adding a second income stream through the construction of an ADU.
As our parents age, difficult decisions need to be made on their care and housing. Being removed from the home they have lived in for years and raised their families can be very stressful. Having an option to bring those parents to an ADU on your property could reduce that stress significantly. With the cost of retirement homes and assistant living facilities skyrocketing, adding an ADU could be a cost effective alternative.
For those ageing seniors who want to stay in their home as long as possible, having a caregiver that helps with your care allows you to stay in your home. This could be a Junior ADU within the existing structure or a detached ADU that gives a little more separation but close enough to respond quickly. The cost of adding an ADU could be a fraction of what an assisting living or retirement home costs and you can remain “King of your Castle”.
The current COVID19 Pandemic, with its social distancing protocols, has many workers needing to work from home. Family dynamics aren’t always conducive to the concentration needed to be productive. Having an ADU that doubles as home office allows for privacy making you more productive. With the new Murphy bed configurations, you can have a workspace desk that folds down into a bed giving the ability to provide extra sleeping space for guests in smaller ADU’s.
When you get the phone call that friends or family want to come visit, having a separate space for them to stay is ideal for everyone. Adding an ADU allows for these visitors to have their own space. It also provides a space for when an extended family member needs a short term place to stay allowing you to be helpful while maintaining your own living space for you and your family. Kids, home from college, are use to their independence. An ADU allows them independence while home.
