The current real estate market offers high prices, smaller inventory, and fewer new builds, forcing homeowners to find alternatives to optimize space and spend less. It also forces potential buyers to look for new housing arrangements like ADU.

An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a secondary housing unit that exists on the same property as a single-family home. They are known as in-law units and can be built as a separate section of a home or as an addition to the current structure. ADU housing comes with its own kitchen and one private bathroom.
Here are some benefits of ADU housing.

1. Source of income
With the current housing crunch, homeowners can alleviate their income with an ADU. ADU housing can be used in different ways, the most common being as a rental unit. You can help pay off your mortgage or fund your business by renting out your granny flat.

2. Optimize space
ADU housing provides extra living space for your family members and friends. It does not take up as much space as new construction and provides privacy because of the additional bathroom and kitchen. If you have a large family and live in a single home, an ADU is the perfect solution to accommodate everyone.

3. Eco-friendly
ADU housing has minimal impact on the environment compared to other housing alternatives. This is because they are generally smaller and take up less space.

4. Flexibility
ADU housing units provide flexibility when it comes to accommodating relatives and the elderly. Your elderly family members can live in the ADU, providing them with the personal space they need while keeping them in the family environment.
