4 Ways Your Garage Can Boost Your Home’s Resale Value

Selling your home? Don't underestimate the impact your garage can make in the minds of potential home buyers. Here are four ways your garage is bumping up the value of your home.

1. Curb Appeal

Did you know that the average garage accounts for 30% or more of your home's façade? Whether you prefer carriage-house charm or contemporary class, the style of your garage door sets the tone for buyers before they even enter your home.

Aesthetic appeal isn't the only reason you should consider an upgrade. According to REALTORS®, a midrange garage door replacement can return 83.7% of costs upon the resale of your home. If you do choose to replace your door, make sure that it's complementary to the architecture and style of your home's exterior.

2. Bonus Living Space

Homeowners often don't hesitate to spend time and money renovating their kitchen or bathroom, but the added surprise of a finished garage can turn an apprehensive buyer into a sure thing. Insulation, drywall, lighting, and flooring are all key to making your garage more functional and creating an opportunity to convert it into an additional living space.

3. Parking and Protection

A big benefit of purchasing a home is the free built-in parking that comes along with it. Condo dwellers can have a hard time finding parking in urban centres or are limited to a single parking space. With a garage, homeowners are only steps away from their front door and have a secure spot to park their vehicle and store their belongings.

4. Extra Storage Space

More and more homeowners are opting for open-concept floorplans, cutting into valuable storage space. A well-organized garage that's been outfitted with shelving, hooks, and overhead storage is a great selling feature.
