Now a 3 hour webinar series at a reduced rate! (Normally a 4 hour in-person class)

Join us for two 1.5 hour webinars intended for professionals looking to increase their knowledge about Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) development in order to respond to increasing client demand for properties with ADU potential.

Increasing rates of prospective home buyers and homeowners are interested in building an ADU on their property, and professionals can be on the cutting edge of this emerging development trend to help homeowners/developers understand site eligibility, development process and costs, and the return on investment of ADUs. This course is intended to help real estate and building professionals understand the basic planning and building regulations for ADU development in Portland and provide some insight on ADU regulations in the broader Portland Metro area.
