On July 6th, 2023, Albuquerque’s Mayor signed a law that now allows the construction of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), also known as Casitas, across the city. This is a great opportunity to increase the value of your property and create a space for your extended family or generate additional income.
What are Casitas - Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)?
Accessory Dwelling Units, also known as Casitas, are small, standalone homes located on the same lot as a larger, primary house.
Ranging in size up to 750 sq. ft., these compact units provide a flexible and affordable housing solution that can serve various purposes. From home offices to rental properties or spaces for aging family members, ADUs offer a wealth of opportunities to homeowners. As part of the City of Albuquerque’s new zoning changes, Casitas are now permitted in various residential zones, unlocking potential for residents to maximize their property’s functionality and value.

Benefits of Casitas
More space for work or family
Casitas provide the extra room you need for a home office, art studio, or recreational area. Transform your living space without moving or costly renovations.
Additional monthly income
An Casita can become a reliable income source if rented out. It pays for itself quickly, providing a consistent cash flow for homeowners.
Casitas make perfect guest suites. Give your visitors a comfortable, private space when they come over, enhancing their stay.
Casitas facilitate multigenerational living, allowing seniors to stay close to family while maintaining their independence. They’re a practical solution for families looking to keep their loved ones near.
Embrace the flexibility Casitas offers with additional room for both professional and personal needs. The shift to remote work has increased the demand for dedicated home offices. A Casita provides a quiet, distraction-free zone that enhances productivity. Besides work, it can also serve as an extra room for your growing family or a space for hobbies, improving your living experience while also adding significant value to your property.
Invest in your financial future with a Casita. This new living space can serve as a source of consistent passive income when rented out. What’s more, a $5k tax credit makes this a profitable venture. This dual-purpose investment not only boosts your property value but can also become a lucrative asset in your portfolio, enhancing your financial stability over the long term. (399 characters)
Transform your property with the addition of a comfortable guest suite. A Casita offers your guests a private space with the luxury of proximity. Perfect for extended stays, your guests can enjoy their own kitchen and bathroom amenities. This unique feature makes hosting visitors a more enjoyable and stress-free experience, adding a new level of comfort to your home.
Invest in a Casita for long-term living solutions. A Casita facilitates aging in place by offering a nearby yet independent living space for seniors. Multigenerational living also becomes more feasible, allowing family members of all ages to maintain their independence while staying close. This set-up promotes an active and fulfilling lifestyle while providing the family with shared memories and mutual benefits.
