  • Your first question might be... What the heck is an ADU??? Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) have been known by many names: granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, guest houses, carriage houses, secondary units and more. I thought this definition from the City of Los Angeles summed it up well: An ADU is an attached or detached residential dwelling unit that provides complete independent living facilities for one or more persons and is located on a lot with a proposed or existing primary residence. It shall include permanent provisions for living, sleeping, eating, cooking and sanitation on the same lot as the single family or multifamily dwelling is or will be situated.

I am a licensed real estate professional with a practice based in Temescal Valley and I serve the needs of buyers, sellers and investors throughout southern California. I founded Dirt To Keys because I recognized the tremendous impact ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) could have by providing affordable housing and supplemental income potential for individuals and families. I built this site as a resource center for everyone in our community thinking about an ADU.
