Dreaming up this Rental ADU in El Cajon
Katherine Street, El Cajon, CA 92020
Homeowner Story: Generate rental income
Oscar, an El Cajon property owner, wanted to add a two bedroom, two bath ADU to his rental property. Hear what he had to say:
“I chose SnapADU to design, permit & build an ADU on my investment property. Having self-managed an ADU project just the year before, I was well-aware of the intricacies and challenges involved. This time, I hoped to delegate the entire thing, looking not just at raw costs but the overall value in terms of time, effort, and money. Working with SnapADU has been nothing short of exceptional. Even amidst a high inflation environment, they honored their pricing from our Feasibility phase, allowing me to proceed with the project on budget despite frustrating city permitting delays. Their commitment to their 6-month price lock is genuine, and they stood by it even beyond that timeframe. I’m particularly grateful for their advocacy when the city was pushing for right of way improvements on my property. SnapADU’s team was well-versed in state ADU laws, and they successfully contested these unnecessary requirements, saving me thousands. Their dedication didn’t stop there; they went above and beyond to assist me in securing a state grant for ADU funding. Despite the paperwork and extended payment delays due to that state program, they supported me without any extra charges. Post-build, their service remained impeccable. I had a warranty claim months after the project was finished, and they responded swiftly, addressing all concerns. If you’re looking for a trustworthy and professional ADU partner, considering the overall value, SnapADU comes highly recommended!”
