With the increased attention given to accessory dwelling units as an option for homeowners to age in place or rent out, UrbanTurf has watched with interest as more options arrive for people looking for a quick and convenient construction option. Enter Dwellito.
The Dwellito marketplace is a one-stop shop for people looking to purchase a modular home, enabling buyers to compare options from different manufacturers and see reviews others have written. Modular homes are often prefabricated for quicker assembly on site, and in many instances, they can mitigate the costs of construction.
Prospective buyers can search by price or number of bedrooms, and there are also options for fully customized accessory buildings. The site also connects buyers with financing options for their purchase. The units are priced starting at $23,500 for a 106 square foot studio (the kitchen is an optional add on), going up to $400,632 for a 1,600 square foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom with a kitchenette.
Don't get excited yet, however — as with most prefab ADUs, what is included in the kit varies from type to type, and there is no getting around the building code requirements where you live, and the cost per square foot when you factor in the need for utilities and permits could exceed ground up construction. Either way, the site provides a wealth of inspiration.
