What is a granny flat?
A granny flat is typically a self-contained housing unit located on the same block as a single-family dwelling. Whether you’re an investor looking to drive additional income from your property, a parent wanting a separate space for their growing teenage family or a retiree thinking about their future – people come to Acrow Investments to get their granny flat project off the ground.
Investing in a granny flat is a smart, cost-effective way to drive additional income from your investment property or create additional value for your home. The majority of Acrow’s granny flats are being rented for more than market value due to style and quality of finish.
