Conversion of the two car Garage

4 Replies

What’s up BP! I seen a single family home in a good location with a decent price. If I was to get the 2 car garage converted and rent out the garage. Will this turn the property to be undesirable? Or when trying to resell down the road? What are the cons?

@Jonathon Nila It should only increase the value. However, depending on the location it can make parking more difficult. I did find it surprising that the ADU law allowed the conversion (I think this would be a JADU) without regard to replacing the lost parking. The legislature clearly valued the infill potential more than the potential impact on neighbors.
