What is an ADU?

When looking to buy a home sometimes you see “ADU potential” in a property listing. An ADU is an Accessory Dwelling Unit aka a mother-in-law apartment that can accommodate a renter. And it’s a boon to potential sellers and buyers alike as it ups the value of a home. It can be a separate, smaller building on the property or even your home’s basement (pictured) with a separate entrance and a kitchenette. With rising home prices it’s something to consider and who knows, maybe your tenant will turn into your favorite neighbor!
