Perks of building an ADU in Los Angeles

Additional source of income

Building an ADU is a great way to earn additional income passively. ADUs can be utilized for both short and long term rentals. Short term rentals are less stable but can provide a large sum of income. Long term term rentals provide decent and stable income.

Cost-effective expansion

ADUs are much more cost-effective than purchasing a larger home. This can translate to higher property value, especially in high-cost real estate markets such as Los Angeles.

Additional living space for family

There is a great appeal in the versatility ADUs offer to properties. A broader range of buyers for instance families may see the ADU as a great place to house an aging relative, or grown children.
