They are amazing investment opportunities, are quick to build, have a short design duration, and are an effortless extension to your existing home. Plus, it's super easy to get council approval. In many instances, you don’t even need council approval. A granny flat really ticks all the boxes and is a far better investment as compared to building a new house elsewhere.
Any Sydneysider knows the challenges of space in the harbour city. With demand for living spaces at all-time highs and a willing rental market, there’s never been a better time to utilise the excess space in your yard.
If you’re unsure whether your property is suited for a granny flat, consider the following 3 scenarios:
Of course, the flat can be used to care for family members and also serve as a rental property, to serve as a long-term investment, with the versatility of your own standalone dwelling a hallmark of this affordable construction project.
Your own granny flat, or Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) is the definition of investing in affordable living.
If you meet certain basic requirements, then you don’t even need council approval. The reason is that councils actually love these structures. It prevents people from buying more land and building a huge house, which is often a waste of space. Space is at a premium and needs to be conserved. Moreover, they are more economical and energy efficient. Everything a city or local planner will cherish. It really is a win-win for all parties.
Obviously, this will depend on many factors. But annual rental income can be similar to a house, at roughly $20,000 per annum. This is in spite of the fact that a house costs nearly 5 times as much to construct as a granny flat. You can literally recoup the cost of the granny flat in 5 years, provided it is rented. This is a fantastic investment, and is also pretty safe.
They are small and simple, meaning they take less time to construct and have less complexity. There are also fewer mistakes and fewer tradies working on the job. In a nutshell, it is more efficient across all vectors. The design process runs a lot smoother and it is easy to get permission, where permission is needed. Lastly, you don’t have to go and find a plot of land, which is always a major headache.
