The only thing here in NH, the values are no where near yours in CA, where the average house in NH is $300,000 or below. Upscale 400-500k and luxury 700k to 2 million.

We're not having trouble but, the appraisers surely are!  LOL  

Seriously, our MLS isn't being very cooperative with regards to ADUs here - we have to list them as auxillary square footage and can't include them as heated square footage.  Therefore, those looking for an ADU or even additional 'second' living space are finding it difficult to locate these properties. This, in turn, impacts the appraisers' valuation, unless we are there with them, to share our knowledge with them and comparables of other properties with ADUs - either attached or detached. You'd think after 5-6 years of this being in great demand, they'd understand the value by now!

I've not noticed any problems yet here in SE Wisconsin.  But I love those Tiny Houses ... I wish we would see some here ... I think they would be a hit with those don't want to rent any longer and have a place to call HOME.

We compare only those parts that are permitted and recorded. If the owner has a guess house or illegally converted garage, it is just a possible bonus ( or/and often a headache).

No.  Appraisals have been a problem across most of the country due to the fast appreciating prices and low inventory.  Most people I know counter out the appraisal contingency.
