9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Learn about the energy benefits, potential income, and use of ADUs in real estate

This four-hour presentation focuses on increasing participants’ knowledge about Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) and State code issues. This course was designed to respond to increasing client demand for properties with ADU potential, while also providing the opportunity to gain a professional accreditation and a competitive edge in the market.

Course Highlights:

  • Learn about what makes a property ADU-ready/eligible
  • What is involved in the process of getting approved to build an ADU
  • Taxation, valuation and financing options for ADU
  • ADU design, permitting, and building process (attached, detached, garage conversion)
  • Understanding how ADUs can be made energy efficient and all-electric
  • Resources to help your clients plan for their ADU (including a budget sample, contract types, development rebate programs, and more)
  • Get answers to your ADU-specific questions & network with other professionals about this specialized topic

As a rapidly increasing number of states and municipalities are creating programs and incentives that reward ADU-style development and to meet this growing demand, more and more professionals will need to be prepared to help homeowners and developers understand site selection, development process, costs of development, and the return on investment of ADU-style structures.
