Search Property Specific Type: Homes For Sale with Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)

We can help you find homes in San Diego CA with the following auxiliary dwelling unit:

  • Guest House: Detached Guest House or Attached Guest House which has a kitchenette
  • Accessory Dwelling Unit which has a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living room, and separate entrance
  • Casita
  • Granny Flat
  • Bedroom suite with a separate entry

Why do homes with a casita or granny flat or accessory dwelling unit make sense for families in San Diego with elder parents:

  • It may be economical to house elder parents, family members vs. assisted living costs with a minimum average of approx. $3,500 per month in San Diego.
  • In the case of seniors who desire independent living (they don’t want to burden the kids), on a subconscious level, they desire to be close to family as imminent health changes happen
  • The floor plans for these homes allow for flexibility, independence, and privacy while multi generations live together
  • When households are combined in a multigenerational property – some duplication of costs are eliminated (i.e. utilities such as internet and cable, trash, landscaping costs, etc).
  • It simplifies financial administration, rather than having to maintain two homes, there will be one property tax, insurance premium, etc.

In the case of elder parents who sell their home and join their kids in a multi-generational set-up, it is important to understand any estate planning impacts including all financial considerations such as mortgage and titling of the property.
