There are many factors that one has to consider if they are looking to add a second unit to the home; for example, is there enough space to actually add the second unit and capability to do so. If you have the area on your property to add a second unit, it could be very beneficial to you and your Home. Some of the most important benefits that can come from it are space and income:
If you are just looking to add more space to the home a great way to create more is to add a second unit to the house. This would be great whether you use it as a place for the family to stay when they visit or if you want to occupy it yourself and allow some of the immediate family to live in it. It is always great to give family when they come to visit a place to stay and have them save a few bucks on not having to get a hotel.
Another way a second unit home can help is by bringing in extra income. This could easily be rented to someone and that rent could either pay for the expense that the unit cost. Once that is pay off that income becomes extra and could be used for whatever you choose to use it for. Some may be able to see some profit sooner if they decide to charge more rent. It all depends on how much places are being rented for in the area. If having a permanent tenant is not something that is that you are into you could always go the Air BNB route. This is an easy way to bring extra income, and it allows the people that want to stay there not to feel like they are staying with someone. Also adding an additional unit to the home will also increase the value to the home should you choose to sell the home. A two unit house is more desirable to buyers because of the extra income the second unit will bring in.
Those are just a few benefits to adding a unit to the home. If you are interested in adding a unit or looking just to add a room make sure to visit our website and schedule your consultation.
