Add Value and Cashflow through ADUs - NSDREI May Meeting

Link visible for attendees

You must register at: http://www.nsdrei.org to attend this event.

One of the hottest trends in real estate investing is accessory dwelling units (ADU) or “granny flats.” Not only can they improve cash flow for a rental property, but they can also increase the value of the entire property! But is this all too good to be true?

Some neighborhoods have excessive requirements or are causing great delay with approvals. Is an ADU still worth the time, cost, and effort?
NSDREI has put together a panel of three real estate professionals who have experience building and adding ADUs throughout Southern California. President Derek Harms will guide the high-level discussion, covering everything and anything ADU related. There will also be an opportunity to have your questions answered by the panel!

Here is just a glimpse of what will be covered:

  • How easy is it to get an ADU approved?
  • Should you build a new ADU or order a manufactured unit?
  • What are typical permit fees?
  • How strict are municipalities on connections? Sewer, water, parking, etc.?
  • How many ADUs can be added to a single-family lot or a multifamily lot?
  • Are ADUs zoning specific?
  • What is the difference between an ADU and a Junior ADU?
  • How do I figure out my property’s limitations for an ADU?
  • What are the tax benefits and disadvantages of adding an ADU?
