Use an ADU for Income
An Accessory Dwelling Unit can provide an extra source of income for homeowners. Air BNB has proved to be a real opportunity or simply find a longer-term Tennant. They can also provide separate spaces in a multi-generational home. Whether it’s bringing aging family members closer for love and care or providing new space for older children or siblings back into a home environment during unsettled times. These structures are an affordable option since they don't require paying for land or any major new infrastructure. Not to mention, they can offer as much living space as other newly built condos and apartments.
The opportunity for extra income is endless because ADUs are well suited for all walks of life (small families, couples, seniors, and young people). Speak with an American Remodelers expert to explore your options!

Top Uses for an ADU
There are several reasons you may be thinking of adding a granny flat to your property. Here are a few:
- Home for an Elderly Relative
If you have a parent or grandparent who refuses to live in a nursing home, an ADU is a perfect solution. This gives them a safe home while offering an independent living space. Not to mention, this option is a lot more affordable and humane when compared to an assisted living home. Many Seniors have found themselves isolated and alone during the quarantine. An ADU is an excellent way to ensure the safety and inclusion of all the generations of a family.
- Long-Term Rental Income
With an ADU, you’ll be able to make some extra income leasing your space to long-term renters. You can do this on a monthly or yearly basis. You’ll base your income on the ADU size, location, features, and amenities. To ensure the home is up to your liking, get in touch with one of our designers today.
- Short-Term Rental Income
Another fantastic use for an ADU is a short-term rental. It’s easy to market your rental property through companies like Airbnb, HomeAway, or Vrbo. Usually, your guests will be tourists who want to experience California living first hand!
