What is the definition of a Granny Flat?

By definition, a granny flat is a secondary suite, accessory dwelling or small residential unit that is self-contained. That is, just like an apartment, it is a completely independent unit, containing at least a bathroom, living space and kitchen facilities. Additionally, a granny flat can either be either attached to, or separate from the principal dwelling.

In Sydney, rising property prices means that granny flats are becoming more popular and make a lot of sense for those looking to:

  • Earn additional income
  • Create additional space for family or friends
  • Downsize by living in the granny flat and renting out the principal dwelling for additional income
  • Increase their property value.

Does a Granny Flat add value to a house in Sydney?

Adding a granny flat will add value to your property because it can offer the opportunity to earn rental income which may make it relatively easier for a new buyer to pay off a mortgage. Additionally, a granny flat may make it more attractive for a larger family to move into. Either way, a granny flat provides the flexibility of potential rental income or added family space which definitely will add value to your property.

How much space do you need for a granny flat?

Granny flats come in a variety of sizes that generally range from about 34 to 80 square metres (sqm). Studio granny flats can be built in a space as little as 8.5m x 4m (34sqm) whereas a 3 bedroom granny flat can be built in a space as little as 60 sqm. So if you want to take advantage of the land available on your property, a small section may be offer your family more flexibility and investment return.

Are granny flats worth it in Sydney?

Granny flats could just be worth it if you have the space! That’s because granny flats can be a great investment opportunity by providing short or long-term rental income opportunities. Additionally, a granny flat can offer you the flexibility of added living space for friends or family. That is, a granny flat might be a great addition for older children, elderly parents or even another family to move into.

Furthermore, adding a granny flat will increase your property value if you ever wanted to move.
