How Much Does A Granny Flat Cost?
Can I afford to build a granny flat?
It’s a question you might have recently asked yourself as you do the research and groundwork on your granny flat project. Building a granny flat on your property is a big investment and there’s a lot to consider in the planning stage. If you’ve gotten this far, you’ve already realised that ranny flats are an increasingly popular way to create income via your property or provide a residence to friends or relatives. Despite the name, granny flats are no longer just for “grannies” – they can be rented to whomever you like or used for a home office or teenager’s retreat.
Granny flats are not inexpensive but could actually be less expensive than a large scale home renovation or extension. They also offer exceptional return on investment and can add more than their value to your home/property. As you research costs, we’ve developed a few tools & articles to make this process easier:
- Granny Flat ROI Calculator – input your initial costs and see your return on investment.
- Investor’s Handbook – some quick reading for the benefits for investors.
