Granny flats are on the rise as a great property investment move!  Not only are granny flats a cheaper way of entering the property investor market, they add value to a principal place of residence or to an investment property.  As a rental, granny flats provide an extra income and generate substantial tax depreciation deductions for property investors.

Granny Flats have come so far since some basic four walls, shabby carpet and a lime green laminate kitchen.  There is a wide range of contemporary and stylish granny flats to choose from to suit your budget and taste. Designs can include one, two or three bedrooms, or even a two-storey granny flat with a two-car garage underneath!  It may leave you thinking about moving in yourself!

Our research indicates the cost of an average brand-new granny flat is between $100,000 to $150,000, with a rental yield return of up to 15%.  Additionally, the tax depreciation deductions available to granny flat property investors can total tens of thousands of dollars over the first few years of the investment.
