Garages add a lot of value onto your home and there are several reasons why they are essential. You may be wondering if you can afford it. The cost of a two car garage can vary depending on the size and style, but according to a study conducted in 2018, the average rate is only $9,993! Below I am going to tell you seven reasons why this is an incredibly significant investment for home buyers and sellers.
You Protect Your Car
Buying or leasing a vehicle is an asset. The average cost of a vehicle in America is over 30,000! That is a big chunk of change to sit out on the street. This is why garage parking should be essential for the car owner.
Yes, we all know we can lock our car doors, but unfortunately, that is not full proof. Every buyer will have peace of mind knowing that their cars are going to be protected from theft and vandalism. Especially if the buyer has a luxury car. This avoids annoying insurance claims or the temporary inconvenience of having no car.
Garage Parking Will Protect A Buyers Car from Bad Weather
Not all of us can live in sunny California where it never rains or snows. Most of us live in the real world where there are all four seasons, and some states can be more severe. If you are living in a city that is known for snow, rain, wind, tornados, monsoons, hurricanes, or even surnames, having a garage will give you peace of mind! Also, if you live in a place where the weather is not severe, other things could potentially be a headache. Nobody wants bird droppings on their car all the time or unwanted shrubbery and leaves
Using Your Home Garage Is More Convenient
We all dread those grocery shopping days where we have 84 bags to bring in the house. Having a garage can eliminate having to walk far with your bags. This can save you time, energy and back problems!
Home Garages Can Keep A Person Safer
We have all came home late at night and felt an eerie feeling like somebody is lurking in the shadows. Having a garage eliminates all this panic. You pull right into your home, and you are inside already. Having a garage is much safer than walking from a parked car at night. This applies to every neighborhood.
When it comes to the value of your home, curb appeal is fundamental. It makes or breaks your entire home appearance. If you have cars parked in front all the time it can take away from the face of your beautiful home and landscaping.
You Barely Drive
Contrary to most beliefs we all hardly drive our cars. Our cars are parked 95% of the time according to a recent study. That means we only provoke our cars 5% of the time and the rest of the time they are sitting ducks.
