When selling your home, your garage can be an attractive part of the overall package you offer buyers. Too often, however, the space is not marketed to its fullest potential. As kitchen, laundry and mudrooms become the new activity centers, homebuyers making their list of "must haves" are searching for more space for storage and hobbies. Now is the time to add a bit of sparkle to that garage.
"While the garage usually is not a deal-breaking element in a home-buying decision, it can be a tipping point for the buyer who is vacillating between a few different homes," said Robin Peterson, president of Coldwell Banker Burnet. "When organized correctly, the garage can add to your home’s ‘wow’ factor."
