Are you looking for a reason to convert your garage into an ADU? Well, you are in luck! Here are 5 garage conversion benefits.
1. Multigenerational Housing
A garage conversion gives you the opportunity to offer housing to your aging parents. That way you can keep a close eye on them but still allow them the independence and privacy they desire. Plus, you won’t have to pay for assisted living.
You can house aging children or struggling family members as well. It can be a great place for anyone in your life to live in while they are trying to get back on their feet.
2. Rental Income Opportunities
A huge advantage to a garage conversion is the ADU rent opportunities. You can rent out your garage to bring in additional passive income. This can help to pay off your mortgage or other big bills, as well as provide housing to struggling families.
3. Non-Living Space
You don’t have to use your garage conversion as a living space. You can use it as a home office, personal gym, pool house, family game area, yoga studio, she-shed, art studio, and much more! The possibilities are endless for what you can turn your garage into. Remember that your garage conversion ADU still needs to contain a bathroom and kitchen no matter what you use it for.
4. Most Affordable ADU
If you have your heart set on having an ADU, a garage conversion is almost always the most affordable option. This is because the structure is already there, you just need to add to it. Of course, if your garage’s foundation or main structure is compromised, it may not be the most affordable option because those aspects will need to be fixed. In most cases though, a garage conversion will save you money on your quest to build an ADU.
5. Boost Your Property Value
A garage conversion can add up to 20% to your property value. If you are looking to sell your property down the line, this can make a huge difference in how much you will be able to sell the property for.
