Creation Of Rental Income

As detached structures in desirable residential areas, ADUs are very profitable as short, mid, or long-term rentals.  This is why in some cities, ADUs are referred to as mortgage helpers. 

“Our tenants find a huge value in having four walls to themselves and having a yard”

- Molly, ATL ADU client

Multi-generational Living

ADUs provide a separate but nearby housing option for aging parents. 

 

“I was able to sell my home, pay for the ADU, and have money left over to invest.  Now I can provide free childcare for my granddaughter, with my family close by if I need help”

- Carry, ATL ADU Client

Meet Demand

"One and two person households now represent 62% of the country's households.  Small housing options in residential neighborhoods are in huge demand to meet the needs of this burgeoning housing demographic."
