Can An ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) Fit In My Lot in Silicon Valley? | Lynne MacFarlane Realtor


If you’re curious and wonder if your existing home lot or a home you’re considering to buy fits an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), I can help you! In this video I walk you through an example using the Symbium website (under California law it will show if an ADU is allowed; Your city may have more restrictions.)

With my help with Intero, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, we have a wonderful partnerships with Abodu, an innovative housing solution company, to provide Intero clients with beautiful prefabricated accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and concierge-level service.

With space at a premium for most Bay Area / Silicon Valley residents, the need for inventive living solutions has never been higher. Couple this with upcoming housing laws—such as Senate Bill 9 (SB 9), which is paving the way for backyard homes to help tackle California’s housing crisis, and you can see why this partnership between Intero and Abodu makes so much sense.

This new partnership allows me to assist my current, future and past clients to quickly connect with Abodu and rethink every yard’s potential! Whether you want to work from home, keep the kids around longer, rent it for extra cash, or welcome Granny to live with you, an ADU such as Abodu is all about knowing your options and adding value to the property.

Feel free to give me a call to arrange a consultation to help you with any questions.

I’m a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) and a Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) and have a background in senior care. I’m also an affiliate member of the Professional Fiduciary Association (PFAC) of Silicon Valley Chapter and can assist with any questions and referrals that may concern your desire for you and family members who wish to “Age In Place” safely.
