2021 Study: How Much Value Do Granny Flats and other Accessory Dwelling Units Add to a Home?

Source:  Porch Research

Key Findings

There are an estimated 1.5 million Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in the United States, making up roughly 2% of all homes in the country

  • ADUs are growing at a rate of 9%, or 100,000 per year
  • An average cost of an ADU is $180,000, or $260 per square foot
  • In America’s biggest cities, a home with an ADU is priced 35% higher on average than a home without one
  • The top states for ADUs are California (30%), Florida (12%), Texas (10%) and Georgia (5%)
  • The cities with the most ADUs are Los Angeles (12%), Portland (4%) and Houston (3%)
  • ADU sale listings are growing fastest in Portland (+23%), Dallas (+19%), and Seattle (+18%)
