Mission: Sell Your House! Part 12

Mission:  Garage Improvement or Addition

In many cases, homes need at least a two stall garage.  More often than not, an oversized 2 stall or a 3 stall garage will help attract buyers to your home.  Adding on to the garage can fetch you almost a 50% return on your money.  Even more important is the ever present ‘curb appeal’ value of the home.  An improvement such as replacing the garage door can add new life, character, and value to the home and bring an average 68% return on the seller’s investment. For many buyers, the garage is another room of the house, but tends to collect ‘stuff’ easily. When getting your home ready to sell, take as much stuff as possible out of the garage, clean it up, and make it shine. Obviously, it’s a garage, so don’t go overboard, but you want it to look as big as possible!
