Finding affordable housing is challenge facing many retired Oregonians. Because they are smaller and share property with another residence, ADUs are a more affordable housing option.
While ADUs are a significant investment, it adds value to your property. Potential buyers will see your ADU as an asset; they may want to use it as a secondary dwelling unit, a home office, or a guest house for visitors and family.
Adding an ADU to your existing property places another housing unit on the market – without the need for additional land. Plus, the smaller sizes of ADUs are a more sustainable housing option for some people than larger single-family residences.
Detached ADUs provide additional privacy for the residents than attached ADUs. Renters or service providers can feel like they have their own place, with privacy from the other residence. For elderly family members, an ADU allows you to give them a greater amount of independence than they would have in a retirement community/assisted living community/nursing home.
