What are some of the benefits of having an ADU?

1. Increased home value

ADUs can significantly increase the value of your home. A recent study in Portland, Oregon found that ADUs added an average of 20% to the resale value of a home, while detached

added even more—an average of 34%.

2. Additional income opportunities for homeowners

ADUs provide an opportunity to generate rental income, which can help offset the costs of owning a home. In some cases, ADUs can even be used as long-term rental units, providing a source of income for retirees or other homeowners who may not otherwise be able to afford their mortgage payments.

3. Opportunity to age in place

ADUs can provide a place for aging parents or other relatives to live, while still allowing them to maintain their independence. ADUs can also be adapted to accommodate people with disabilities, providing them with a safe and comfortable place to live.

4. More affordable housing options

ADUs can help make housing more affordable by increasing the supply of available units. In addition, because ADUs are often smaller than traditional homes, they tend to be more affordable to build and maintain.

5. Increased flexibility in the housing market

ADUs provide homeowners with increased flexibility in the housing market. For example, ADUs can be used as short-term rental units, making it easier for homeowners to move if they need to. ADUs can also be converted back into traditional living space if the need arises.

Overall, ADUs offer many benefits to both homeowners and the community. They provide an opportunity to increase home value, generate rental income, provide more affordable housing.
