Adding an income suite or rental unit is the single biggest way to increase the value of your home and generate cash flow. Getting it right the first time is essential to ensure your new income suite is a money-maker, and is also legal, safe, and a place that your tenants will love and want to stay.

Putting in an income suite, whether it's in your basement, or anywhere else on the property, has some big advantages.  Shows like HGTV's 'income property' has helped people understand what building and owning an income suite entails, and how it can benefit them.

  • It increases the value of your home.

  • It has the biggest return on investment (ROI) than any other home renovation project.

  • You can pay off your mortgage is half the time by applying the rent to the mortgage.

  • It can supplement an income during maternity leave or during a time of unemployment.

  • It provides someone to share the utility bills and property maintenance costs.
