Casitas Are A Popular Option In 55+ Communities And Luxury Homes

Southwest Homes with Casitas Are Homes with Guest Houses

homes with guest housesThe Tucson MLS identifies homes with guest houses as homes with a “casita”. Casita means “little house” in Spanish.

Homes with “guest houses” will have the casita detached from the main home.

However, there are also homes with attached casitas. Most have a separate entry. But sometimes the entrance is from the home.

An attached casita is also known as “guest quarters”.

Casitas are usually located in the front of a home so that guests can enter the casita without entering the main home.

Some homes with guest houses will have the casita in the rear of the home with a pathway on the side of the home to the entry.

But one thing to keep in mind. Your guests will love the separate quarters. So be careful, they may not want to leave. The 3-day rule can need to be put into effect. That is “after 3 days, guests and fish begin to smell”.

Casitas will usually have the main room, bedroom, and bath. Some homes with guest houses will have more elaborate casitas and include a small kitchenette.

Homes with guest houses are found in most areas of Tucson. Especially, luxury home and 55+ adult communities. While available for guests, the casitas are frequently used as studies, home offices and exercise rooms.

Homes With Guest Houses For Sale Will Be Priced Higher

Casitas add value to a home. Accordingly, homes with guest houses for sale will be listed at higher prices than those without one. Many high-end home builders offer home plans with guest houses. Both custom homes and semi-custom homes with guest houses or casitas will be more expensive. However, when the home is sold, it will be worth more.

The higher pricing is due to the fact that homes with guest houses need bigger lots. Therefore, lot premiums are higher when building. Likewise, resale homes with land for homes with guest houses also cost more.

Additionally, since the casita is a separate structure, it is a “second” house on the property. The builder has to pour the second foundation, frame the structure and run plumbing and electric along with installing heating and cooling systems. They don’t call it a casita or “small house” for no reason.
