Make Your Garage a Selling Point for Your House

Most homebuyers don’t set their sights on buying a house based on the quality of the garage. However, a high-quality garage space may just end being the tipping point for some buyers, especially if they are DIYers or car buffs. Tickle the potential buyer’s fancy with an upgraded garage.

Doors

An attractive garage door can add curb appeal to the front of your house. If your door is dented, rusty or just dated looking, consider upgrading with a new garage door Denton that elevates the look of the whole house. The doors can make a statement through a bold color, fabrication or design. An insulated garage door might be a great selling factor for homebuyers who like to tinker. Don’t forget to add a quality garage door opener when you replace the door.

Vents

Garages build up heat in the summer. Installing a garage ventilation system helps alleviate this problem. This is especially important if the garage doesn’t have two sources of fresh air for a cross breeze such as a window and the big door. It’s also important to properly ventilate the garage so that any chemicals or exhaust from the car doesn’t have time to build up.

Lights

Extra bright lights not only make the garage space more appealing but also more usable. A dark shadowy garage isn’t likely to be enticing to anyone. On the other hand, one with motion sensor lights and extra task lighting installed is going to open the possibilities for potential buyers. The extra lighting makes it more secure for homeowners returning after dark and increases its value as a functional workspace.

Side Door

If your garage is detached without a walkthrough door, consider installing one. Garages can be important to the smooth operation of a household and making it easily accessible is a big part of its practicality.

Garages aren’t the sexiest space on a property, and they are often the last place a homebuyer looks; however, that doesn’t mean they don’t add (or take away) value to your home.
