Conversations: In Need of a New Address?

This ADU in Menlo Park will be attached to the existing garage that sits in front of the main residence. This brought forward a conversation about selecting the new address and conventions that have been developing around numbering these units in this burgeoning market.


TIP: If homes on the street are using sequential numbers, homeowners tend to add an “A” to delineate the unit, but this is creating some confusion in the real estate and financing world because agents see the “A” and think it is the primary residence. While “B” suggests that it may be a duplex. To provide a distinct sequential number we recommend following the address with “1/2” to help avoid any confusion.
