Creating new homes and stronger communities
United Dwelling partners with homeowners to transform your garage into an affordable, high-quality home at no cost to you. You’ll receive additional income from monthly rent and an overall increase in your property value.
We handle every aspect of the remodeling process including permitting, retaining a licensed contractor for construction, finding tenants for your approval, and managing the property.
We do the work, you share the rent. It’s that simple.
How It Works
Homeowners sign a straightforward agreement to lease their garage or backyard to United Dwelling and receive a portion of the rent.
United Dwelling obtains all necessary permits and manages the entire remodeling process from start to finish. We pay for all costs to convert your garage or backyard into a rental home.
United Dwelling finds you a vetted tenant for approval. We do the rest, from property management and maintenance, to collecting monthly rent.
Benefits of Working with United Dwelling
No Money, No Hassle, You Pay Nothing
Besides the headache of permitting and managing contractors to build a rental home in your backyard, the out of pocket costs are significant. United Dwelling retains a licensed contractor, Modative Build Inc., pays for, and manages everything for you.
Reliable Source of Income
We will find and recommend qualified tenants for your approval, including local nurses, teachers, and other professionals. When your new tenant moves in, you share a portion of the monthly rent.
Increase Property Value
Adding a rental home, known as an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), to your backyard will increase the value of your property significantly — typically from $140,000 to $200,000.
Strengthen Your Community
California is facing a housing crisis. By converting your under-utilized garage or backyard into a new home, together we can offer an affordable way of living that is accessible to all.
What’s an ADU?
New California state laws allow homeowners to convert their garage or build a new rental home known as an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). By transforming your backyard into additional housing, you’re helping making a profound and positive change to your community with the benefits of increasing your property value and building long term equity through rental income.
