Many Maxable clients are building accessory dwelling units for rental income. How much do they earn? It depends on the ADU and the location!

Accessory dwelling units have a long history in Los Angeles—for decades “back houses” were home to creative artists who flocked to the city as well as to teachers, nurses, and others who needed low-cost housing.

Today’s accessory dwelling unit boom has transformed the once-humble back house. While some are still relatively affordable to rent, demand for high-end ADUs has inspired homeowners to create beautifully designed and appointed units.

Which of these super stylish ADUs would you choose to call home?
