A granny flat, or secondary dwelling, is self-contained accommodation attached or separate to an individual home.
One of the common reasons our customers first engage with VanHomes is that they are looking for a retirement solution, whereby parents can maintain their independence and freedom while still living close to their families. VanHomes is a hassle-free solution that makes retirement easy.
Previously granny flats used to be a clever solution for helping elderly relatives retire close to family. But now, there are many potential benefits to having a granny flat.
VanHomes is the perfect solution in the situation where the person that's living in the VanHome is related to the person in the main dwelling on the property. Many Australian couples are looking for the flexibility of lifestyle, along with a more secure plan for their retirement. A granny-flat unit provides this security and is an affordable retirement option that keeps families close to their loved ones.
If you add a legally-compliant dwelling to your property, this could increase the total value of your property.
As a secondary dwelling, and following legal regulations, Granny Flats could be a great long-term investment as a rental property.
This could be the ideal space for accommodating friends or relatives who need a place to stay, or creating a family hub outside of the home.
