ADU REAL ESTATE , BUYING AN ADU
You have money saved up, lots of ideas, and don’t know where to start when it comes to expanding your property—there are plenty of options with just as many drawbacks. It can be easy to get lost in a whirlwind of costs and frustration when you’re trying to add on to your home. Accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, offer the sweet spot needed to feel confident about your real estate investment without rendering doubt that you may have to jump through many hoops to get it done.
#1 Renovations Can Disrupt Your Daily Life
Nobody likes the sound of construction in the morning, even if it’s your hired contractor causing all the racket and building your home addition. Construction noise is loud, the work always seems too slow, and no matter how excited you initially were about your new room or guest house, you want them out of there ASAP.
#2 Building a Guest Home Can Take a While
Building your ADU can become a long and frustrating process if you partner with the wrong contractor. If your contractor isn’t educated on zoning, development, and other standards in California, your ADU construction process could drag on. Similarly, in Washington, if your contractor is unaware of recent reforms to ADU construction laws, your building process could exceed your anticipated timeline. Some contractors can take upwards of nine months to have your ADU ready to live in. By partnering with Abodu, you can take the frustration out of expanding your home. Our Abodu Built-To-Order projects take as little as 6 months, from start to finish.
#3 Enjoy a Better & Quicker Return on Your Investment
If you’re interested in building an ADU in California, new laws make it easier for you to get one in your backyard as quickly as possible. So if you’re planning on renting out your new unit, you don’t have to worry so much about the time it will take before you can start getting the return on your investment.
#4 They’re the Best Solution for Hosting Guests
If you’re the kind of host that feels especially nervous about hovering, ADUs offer separate spaces dedicated to guests. After welcoming them to their lodging, you won’t have to lift a finger. ADUs come equipped with full bathrooms, kitchens, and full-size appliances.
#5 They’re More Affordable Than Comparable Units
With a quick internet search, you’ll quickly find that ADUs are a more economical option than trying to build a guest house from the ground up. Abodu’s pricing is upfront from day one. So you don’t have to stress about the complications that come with hidden fees. Additionally, with our Abodu Pricing Guarantee, we do not profit if the cost of your project changes. And we don’t mark up permitting fees.
#6 They’ll Easily Fit in Just About Any Backyard
Find an ADU that works for you. If you don’t need much space, you can explore options as compact as 340 square feet. You can also find larger ADU units with the same features at an affordable price for extra space.
#7 They Help Address California’s Current Housing Crisis
With housing prices on the rise, it’s a struggle these days to raise a family or plant roots just about anywhere in California. With an accessory dwelling unit, access to a custom-built home is at your fingertips, even if you don’t have much land or a huge budget.
#8 You Can Shop Prefab Units
Pre-fabricated ADUs make maintaining your lifestyle that much easier. Having your unit built offsite means less noise, less time with strangers on your property, and less stress affecting your mood until it’s all over.
Now’s the Time to Act
There’s no better time than now—laws paved the way to make getting an ADU in your backyard or anywhere else in California or Washington easier than ever. Work with Abodu to start a Built-To-Order project that meets your needs exactly. Our accessory dwelling units are world-renowned and combine head-turning Scandinavian modernism at a speed that can’t be matched anywhere else.
