Increased Property Value:

Adding an ADU can increase the overall value of your property. It’s an attractive feature for potential buyers or appraisers, which can lead to higher resale prices. ADUs are generally more cost-effective to build compared to traditional home additions. They often require fewer materials and less time to construct.


Extra Income:

One of the most significant advantages of building an ADU is the potential for additional rental income. By renting out the ADU, homeowners can offset their mortgage payments or create a reliable stream of passive income.

ADU Building Requirements?

Before you start planning your ADU project, check with your local zoning department to understand the regulations and permits required. Regulations may dictate the ADU’s size, placement, and design. Here’s a checklist from the City of San Jose.


Flexible Use:

ADUs are an excellent solution for multigenerational families who want to live together while maintaining some degree of independence. It provides a separate living space for aging parents, adult children, or other family members. ADUs are versatile and can serve various purposes. They can be used as a home office, a studio, a guest house, or even a short-term rental through platforms like Airbnb.
