The Bright Side Of Granny Flats
Everyone talks about houses and apartments, but if you’ve clicked on this article, it probably means you are looking to build a granny flat. Granny flats are quite underrated, there’s not much said about them and how important and valuable they are. They bring about so many different benefits and a cheaper alternative than buying a house or an apartment while still providing more room. If you’re on the fence about whether you should upgrade your house and have a granny flat at the back or not, here are a few benefits of granny flats:
New Additions In the Family
If you have more family living with you, you will need more space and granny flats can do that for you. It saves you the trouble of having to knock down part of your house to extend the room by building a granny flat that is not attached to the home but still within the same land.
Getting More Income
Having a granny flat at the back of your house is a quick and easy way to get more income. Many people who want to generate more income usually would put their granny flat on the market for rent. This is effective for those who want to rent out space but for a cheaper rate than a house or apartment so it is quite popular and in-demand to renting out a granny flat.
Adding Value To Your Home
It is without a doubt that if you add a granny flat to your home, it will increase the value of your home so that when you choose to sell it, it’ll be more valuable. It is hard to say how much granny flats will add value to your home but if you’re curious, we highly recommend that you contact your local agent and discuss this with them.
Surprisingly, the time it takes to build a granny flat is fairly quick! Of course, it is a lot easier to build a granny flat than a house but it’s also quicker than an apartment. To have a granny flat, you can look at having it completed within a few months so if you want a quick option for more space, a granny flat is your answer.
Getting Council Approval Is Easier
No one likes to sit around and wait to get the council to approve building a home. The process is tedious and very strenuous; but with granny flats, you can get council approval a lot quicker because you’re building it on your land.
