Owning an ADU can help build long-term wealth by offsetting mortgage costs or generating income once your mortgage is paid off on your primary home.
ADUs allow people to age in place by providing an array of options, such as an easy downsize to a separate, more accessible home on the property. Other options are to use the ADU as living quarters for a caregiver or for a relative or friend who needs a place to live.
An ADU can provide a place for a family member to live together on the same property, such as an elderly parent or grandparent, children, or grandchildren, while still providing private spaces.
Adding more long-term rental options into the Sacramento region will help stabilize the rental market.
Sacramento, like many other cities in California, is facing a housing crisis. Housing is becoming increasingly unaffordable across all income levels due to high demand and lack of supply of all housing types, particularly affordable housing. ADUs can be part of the housing solution in Sacramento by increasing our housing stock with a more naturally affordable housing type.
70% of Sacramento’s residential neighborhoods are zoned for single-unit dwellings. With most of these neighborhoods already built out, ADUs are a great way to add additional housing opportunities in our existing neighborhoods.
