Why you should consider adding an ADU to your backyard
Additional Space at Home
There are so many demands on our homes these days. Whether it’s the need for a home office, a homework room for the kids or a place for a relative to stay, our homes have never played a more central role in our lives and they are being overwhelmed with activity. Accessory units help relieve this stress. They provide a quiet refuge, steps away from your primary residence.
With a full kitchen and bathroom and a typical size around 400 square feet, ADUs can also function as a rental unit in your backyard. They are popular options for tenants seeking an alternative to apartment living or for couples looking to get away for a weekend. Whatever the arrangement, accessory units can be a solid income generator for a homeowner.
We also offer programs that help offset the cost of ownership through ongoing lease and management agreements. You enjoy the increase in property value as your ADU pays for itself.
Increased Home Value
When you build an ADU you are making an investment in your home. Accessory units increase the livable area on your property, and they can generate significant rental income for the homeowner. Both factors can drive an increase in home value.
Why you should choose Capital Dwelling
Although accessory units provide significant benefits, many homeowners are reluctant to take on the challenges of new construction by themselves, and for good reason. Local government regulations and permitting can be difficult to navigate and swarms of individual contractors can result in a logistical nightmare that would overwhelm most homeowners.
Your Single Point of Contact
Capital Dwelling was created to help solve this problem! Our firm serves as the single point of contact for the homeowner in this process. We arrange the financing, manage the construction, coordinate the landscaping and we can even find you a tenant if you choose to rent out your ADU once it’s complete.
These times are stressful enough without taking on a major home improvement project by yourself. Let Capital Dwelling put the benefits of an accessory dwelling unit within your reach, without the headaches typically associated with construction.
