Live the “Suite” Life with a Secondary Suite

What is a Secondary Suite?

Or better yet, what isn’t a secondary suite! A secondary suite is exactly as it’s spelled: it’s a second “suite” or “home” within your home. Complete with its own kitchen, one to three bedrooms, bathroom(s), and a central living space, enjoy the benefits of two Rohit homes built into one! You can’t get better than that.

Three Reasons to Build a Secondary Suite  

Why not? Big space means big things, and the benefits of secondary suites are huge!   

1. Built for Multi-Generational Living

Need space for mom and dad? How about extra space for your adult “kids” who have very clearly overstayed their welcome? Say “hello” to the perks of a secondary suite! Use this extra space to house close relatives, extended family, or friends, all away from the comfort and quiet of the rest of your home-sweet-home.  

2. Secondary Suite = Secondary Income

And who doesn’t love a little extra cash (or a lot!)? Use your secondary suite as a rental unit. The supplementary income generated from renting can contribute towards your monthly mortgage payments, meaning lower average payments for you! We’re not kidding; see our charts below.

3. Get Paid to Build!

Everyone is rooting for you, even the city! Secondary suite developments are eligible for up to $20,000 through the City of Edmonton Cornerstone II Grant. Some restrictions do apply.
