Thinking of selling your home? There are several things you can do to increase its value. Something that would help would be doing your garage up. We talked about 6 great things that’d help. Read ahead.
Look At Your Yard
Renovate your front-yard. Your yard and the garage are spaces connected, so they should complement each other. There are a thousand of way you can make your yard better, but trimming the grass, adding some new plants and painting the walls of your home would be easy firsts. Maintaining cleanliness in your yard is essential to the cleanliness of your garage. E
Something that would make buyers find the garage more appealing would be improved ventilation. The rooms are tiny spaces, so they can feel claustrophobic. More vents would reduce this feeling.
The addition of the vents would make the space safer as carbon monoxide from your vehicle’s exhaust wouldn’t collect either. Buyers that are families tend to look for these types of things.
As garages are generally not that big, they not only get claustrophobic, but they can also get dungeon like. These days, buyers are all about spaces with good lighting. You can let natural light come in by add a couple of windows.
What kind, though? Awnings are great. With the windows present, ventilation would also improve.
A New Door
Although the garage door you have may be great, it’s old and not a shiny new one. Overhead doors come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. They can be pretty expensive, though, so look at options for residential overhead doors before settling.
Depending on where you live, the materials you can get the doors made out of would differ. Most Toronto overhead door parts tend to be made from wood or aluminum.
Garages are popular spaces to store items. That’s why a good storage management system should be present. This could be many things– you could have multiple shelves built into the walls.
There could also be custom made cupboards built, with hidden drawers for extra space. The addition of the custom item raises the value of the property quite a bit. And making items available such as garage winter floor mats can help entice potential buyers. They can help control mess from a car which makes maintaining a clean garage much easier.
You have no idea how useful more electrical outlets in a garage would be. It’s unfortunate that when building homes, not much of them are placed in garages. But this isn’t a surprise, as people tend to not spend a lot of time in the spaces.
The presence of at least two outlets per wall would drive your property value up.
A Separate Entrance
This is the most expensive entry on our list – add a separate entrance to the room. It’d lead to the inside of your home.
Many modern homes are like this, so a house without the entrance would seem dated. The new entrance would also make living in the property easier as you don’t have to open the garage door to exit all the time.
There are quite a few things you could do to make your property rise in value. Thankfully, we talked all about them.
