Versatile Housing Options with ADUs

Posted by Home Quest on May 21, 2024

The high cost of housing, coupled with high mortgage rates, affects all home shoppers, but it has had the biggest effect on first-time homebuyers trying to enter the market, and the sandwich generation – those who are taking care of aging parents as well as young children – who need more space.

ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) continue to gain popularity due to their versatility in meeting the varied needs of homeowners. Sales of ADUs have been fueled in part by shows on HGTV and Netflix, as well as legislation signed by California Governor Newsom that is designed to remove barriers to ADU construction and help ease the state’s housing shortage.

An ADU, which can be up to 800 sq. ft., is placed on the lot of an existing single-family home. These small units can be fully equipped homes with a bathroom and kitchen, making them ideal for single or older adults who don’t need much space. They are ideal for multi-generational living, allowing older parents to be close to family yet enjoy their own space and privacy.

Many homeowners are also buying ADUs in lieu of remodeling and doing a room addition because an ADU can be used as a home office, gym, or guest quarters, and also used as a rental unit to generate passive income. This versatility makes an ADU a terrific investment.

“Today’s ADUs have an elevated and stylish feel and can be equipped with amenities on par with site-built homes,” said Shane Joffe, partner and sales and marketing manager of HomeQuest. “Just like their larger manufactured home counterparts, ADUs are built to code, and can increase your property value.”

ADUs are also considered eco-friendly since the units don’t require additional land, they use fewer resources to build and maintain than a site-built structure, they often make use of existing infrastructure, and they use less energy for heating and cooling. These units are also available in a variety of sizes and configurations, making them more customizable to your specific needs.

As ADUs become more widely recognized as an affordable and versatile solution not only to the housing crisis, but as alternatives to traditional home additions, reach out to us here at HomeQuest if you would like to learn more about the options available.
