CAN YOU GENERATE INCOME BY BUILDING AN ADU ON YOUR PROPERTY? HERE ARE TWO CASE STUDIES THAT SHOW YOU HOW. by Kristopher Conner

The Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is revolutionizing housing in Los Angeles on single family residential lots. The additional rentable constructed space should be profitable when completed based on current median rent prices in Los Angeles.

ADU CASE STUDY - EXAMPLE 1:

1200 SFT DETACHED ADU SINGLE STORY (3 BEDROOM, 2 BATH)

Maximize the income potential of your property by adding the largest allowable 1200 sft accessory dwelling unit. This example is attached to the existing garage and provides a master bedroom and bathroom, two additional bedrooms, second shared bathroom, open living room/kitchen/dining, and utility room.

ADU CASE STUDY - EXAMPLE 2:

400 SFT GARAGE CONVERSION (STUDIO)

The simplest build is the garage conversion to studio apartment. The profit for this project type is great based on the budget estimator and median studio rent in Los Angeles. Rents in Los Angeles vary widely, so it is good to do some research on your specific area to get an idea of what the rentable space would fetch and if the numbers work for you.
