Getting Your Garage In Order Helps Sell The House!

Sometimes the garage, basement or shed can be the reason a home is purchased. So spruce it up! I have seen the floors painted, the space decluttered, the shelves straightened just like you would do for the home interior. I have seen these newly cleaned up garages be selected for future work and exercise spaces and thus become a pivotal part of the home selection process.

Getting Your Garage In Order Helps

Sell The House!

 

 

'Your clients are getting ready to sell.  They're asking you, the expert, what's the one room in their home they should spend time and money on to have the biggest impact on the sale of the house.' 

 

Getting the garage space in order and in immaculate condition is the one area a seller can update. This is not an expensive project but does take some work.

   I have seen homes staged and all the excess stuff was loaded in the garage. Their thoughts 'it's just a garage and people know what a garage is.' A clean organized garage can sell a house.

Buyers need to see this large  vacant, clean, painted and organized space with all the possibilities of housing their prized vehicle.

If you  have a garage... make sure there is room for the car!!

Paint the walls and ceiling and then clean the shelves and any stains on the garage floor. There are some wonderful paints for concrete floors that make a garage sparkle. Make sure the windows are clean, the light bulbs are bright and  auto openers are in good working condition.

I seriously will just have to move out of my house and take all my "stuff" before putting it on the market.

After shaping up the garage, the basement needs the same treatment.
