Are you interested in building an ADU on your property? An ADU is an "accessory dwelling unit."
I have been on many properties in Sacramento that have been valued higher because of a garage on an alleyway or another great opportunity to build an ADU.
If you are looking to buy a home in California and add an ADU onto the property, check out these resources:

The Symbium app is a fantastic tool. You can type in the address of the property you are interested and the app will let you play around with different sizes and placement of an ADU. It will also let you know if an ADU can legally be built on the property.
