San Diego Realtors Learn What Is and Isn't A Factory Built ADU

 

Since the rollout of the State of California's new ADU laws in 2017 there have been myriad approaches as to what really constitutes a Factory Built Accessory Dwelling Unit. CREST BACKYARD HOMES would like to help set the record straight by sharing a recent ZOOM presentation they were invited to participate in by the North San Diego Association of Realtors (NSDAR).

 

This very informative presentation is a fast paced 1 hour overview covering the definition of a HUD Manufactured and/or Modular, Factory Built ADU vs a Park Model and Tiny Home On Wheels as well as the permit process and the financing ramifications involved in this process.

 

The City of San Diego has just enacted a regulation that now allows Park Models and Tiny Homes On Wheels (THOW) into the lineup of permittable ADU's even though they are regulated by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and not the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). 

 

However, it is very important to know what lenders will allow as chattel or real property and thereby eligible for conventional long term financing. You will also hear from a planner from the County of San Diego as she discusses the protocol and costs involved in obtaining a permit for planning and building or installing an ADU. 

 

If you would like a more comprehensive overview of our protocol be sure to download our Step By Step “Everything You Need To Know About Building An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Guide” below for a detailed overview on what you need to know about planning and installing a HUD  CREST BACKYARD HOME. Please feel free to email, text or call us anytime and be sure to explore our entire website.

We welcome your participation and as usual awaiting any/all constructive feedback from the Active Rain Community.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD This industry is spreading like a wind fanned fire across the nation. I wouldn't be surprised to see some real experts rearing their heads soon in the PNW. One very good source is a good friend of my, Kol Peterson. Kol Peterson <kol@accessorydwellingstrategies.com>. Here's a link to some of his videos.

We are working together right now to launch a RE professional's ADU designation in San Diego. I think he has this same program in the PNW as well.

There was one in Portland, specifically for Oregon agents, or I would have attended. I also believe there have been some in Seattle, hopefully I'll find one closer to home for Washington agents.

Endre Barath, Jr. Truth be known there are a lot of two story adu's being built in SoCal. We actually built two of these in 2006. They're hybrids. Bottom floor is a singlewide manufactured module and the 2nd floor was site built over the top of the roof as nothing is allowed to be physically connected to the manufactured component.
