ADU News You Can Use

Do It Yourself? Or Hire An Experienced Team?

We all know our limitations and when it's time to call in the experts. Even as a general contractor I'm the first to realize that, while I'm responsible for all the experts, sub contractors, architects, engineers and tradesmen on any/all contracts I enter into, never would I venture into areas that I'm not experienced in.

However, there are those that do have the trade skills and experience to take on  the myriad tasks involved in a construction project and for those that do I have the utmost respect. But for those that don't have those abilities I strongly urge you to use a license, bonded and insured contractor/s and Manufactured Home Dealer. 

Part 1,  Do It Yourself vs Hiring CREST BACKYARD HOMES of our eleven part series on "Use A Reverse Mortgage To Finance Your Accessory Dwelling Unit"  thoroughly addresses the many steps involved in doing a project like this yourself vs. hiring the experts.

With 10 thousand Baby Boomers turning 65-75 years old everyday there is a huge demand for aging in place. Find out how you can increase value and earn additional income on the very earth you own beneath your feet. 

While there are several options available for financing your ADU project a perfect solution for any homeowner 55 and older using a Reverse Mortgage "HECM" loan to finance your BACKYARD HOME PROJECT may be the best decision you could make.

John I've said it on your last post and I'll say it again......this could be a huge opportunity for fairly low cost to offer loved ones a home or use as a rental  in ones retirement years.  Very interesting ideas!
