Does it feel like the rents and the property values in Southern California are too high? Have you been looking for a solution to the housing shortage that fits your budget nicely? The answer to these questions very well could be “ADUs.” The acronym stands for “Accessory Dwelling Units,” but they can be so, so much more than just an accessory. If you’re a homeowner looking for a way to add value to your property and bring in rental income without having to put in too much work, these can be an absolute boon. Our experienced ADU contractor in Los Angeles team can provide you with the right ADU for your needs.
Can an ADU Be Constructed on Your Property?
The shortest answer to this question is, “Yes, provided you have enough room.” While there are many specific guidelines in regards to ADU, you can have one as long as it’s both five feet from any property lines and at least ten feet from the main residence. Additionally, you can’t just decide to up and build one of these of your own volition. In all likelihood, you’ll have to run your plans by the local department of building and safety. Should this include the new construction of an ADU, that means a lot more than just “something drawn on a napkin,” so to speak. It means diagrams, exact measurements, usually a floor plan done by a pro architect. We can help you with this as well as just about any other aspect of ADU construction.
An ADU on Time and On Budget
Here at JP Builders & Development, we’ve built ADUs of all kinds. That means we’ve added onto the existing residence and it also means we’ve built a detached back house. For the most part, the range of price with ADUs tends to come in somewhere between fifty-thousand to one-hundred-and-fifty-thousand dollars. That said, as you might imagine, there are many exceptions to that. For example, if you don’t want the finish but just the rough construction, that price might go lower. Of course, there are financing options, too, so you can pay how you’d like.
What You Can Get With an ADU
Simply put, you could have plenty of rental income from one person or another staying in your ADU. Alternatively, it could be a great guest home for entertaining, having family or friends stay with you for periods of time. The boost in your property’s value can be massive from a top-notch ADU as well.
An ADU Contractor in Los Angeles for Your Needs
To get all of the benefits that an ADU can provide, the ADU has to be made right. That means, at the very least, it has to be able to pass through the various inspections city officials will conduct. The structure, the plumbing, the heating, the electricity, and more will all have to pass with flying colors. To see what ADU options could fit your needs, you can reach us at (818) 699-0449.
