What is a new construction ADU?
A new construction ADU is a detached or attached new structure built on your property for the intended purpose of renting out or providing housing for family, friends, or perhaps even yourselves. The best properties for a new construction ADU have a flat yard with space available, no heritage/protected trees, easy access from the street for getting materials to the building site, and, of course, close to public transit so you don’t need to provide off street parking. Through SB9, any residential zoning is eligible to build a new construction ADU or garage conversion ADU.
Benefits of a new construction ADU
Building a new construction ADU will increase your property value more than a garage conversion. Not only will you be able to keep your garage, a value add in and of itself, you’ll be adding a completely separate money maker on your property as well. The cost of building a new construction ADU is slightly higher than a garage conversion, as you’re building from scratch rather than on an existing slab, but the difference isn’t much and the ROI will quickly outweigh the cost. The immediate value of a completed ADU will be greater than the cost it was to build.
