The average apartment size in Orange County is a whopping … 923 square feet. Not much, right? We’re willing to bet that your home in OC or LA is a hair larger than that — but that doesn’t mean you don’t still want additional space. After all, you may have a growing family, friends or loved ones moving in with you, or simply want more space for hanging out, hobbies, and more. A garage conversion allows you this. Instead of parking your car in the garage, convert it (park your car on the street or under a carport) and get garage plans that work for. These can range anywhere from turning a garage into a bedroom to turning it into an ADU that generates additional income for you.
Potential Increase in Income
What was that about additional income? Remember how the average apartment size is only 923 sq. ft.? Well, the average cost of rent in Orange County is a whopping $2,107. By completing a garage conversion on your property, you could turn it into an apartment that could practically be passive income for you. Sure, you’ll be a landlord — but of a person you choose and on your same property so the work invested will be minimal. And bonus: property taxes don’t increase when you add an ADU to your property.
Increase in Property Value
While property taxes won’t increase, your property value certainly will. By building a garage apartment, detached garage, or other garage remodel on your Orange County or LA property, you can watch the resale value skyrocket, as this is something many potential buyers will consider to be a huge asset. This is especially true in places like OC and LA, as both are popular for renting and are low on housing options.
