Build a New Home in Your Backyard / Build Casa
Startups may be the key to addressing America's housing crisis. BuildCasa, for example, recently secured $3.5 million in pre-seed financing to enable Californian homeowners to build accessory dwellings in their yards.
Inaccuracies in the American housing market are no secret. Axios recently reported on data from Freddie Mac, which found that an additional 3.8 million homes would be necessary to bridge the gap.
While there may be some dispute over the cause and consequences, it can be agreed that increasing housing supply is a part of the answer. But, how does this have anything to do with startups? As it transpires, new business strategies have arisen due to recent regulations aimed at solving the scarcity of houses.
Startups such as BuildCasa are taking advantage of recent regulations to enable homeowners to construct extra housing units on their properties, thereby creating a more efficient use of available land.
This can be immensely helpful in areas like California which are facing accommodation shortages. By providing owners with the resources to extend their homes, BuildCasa is broadening the supply of housing without having to build from scratch or tear down existing buildings. Not only does this work towards solving the ongoing crisis, but it also gives homeowners the option of earning rental revenue or accommodating family members.
The recent $3.5 million pre-seed funding for BuildCasa is poised to expand access to secondary units and simplify the building process for homeowners in California. This initiative, along with other similar efforts being undertaken across the nation, has the potential to make a meaningful contribution towards tackling the nationwide housing shortage.
