Long Island Condo Buyer Do You Need A Garage?

Real Estate Agent with The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803

Do You Need Garage Space?...We always ask this question when speaking to a potential Condo buyer, as not all our Long Island communities have them. 


For Example, Blue Ridge Condominium, Bretton Woods, Sagamore Hills, Nob Hill and Snug Harbor do not have any garages. They do have ample parking lots within the different sections. Yet, without any garages, they are each very popular communities. 


Some Condo communities have garages and also have units with only a parking space, like the Townhouse we recently sold in Fairfield At St. James. This residence did not have a garage, yet we had multiple offers that were over the asking price.


Sure many people want the convenience of extra storage space, bad weather conditions or for security reasons, but sometimes these aren't an issue if the buyer really wants a certain community and location.


We are currently working with a buyer who only wants to move to Foxgate in Central Islip, where there are no garages. She said she always had a garage, and needs one, but if we can find her a unit there she would move in a second!


Do more buyers want to have a garage at their Long Island Condo than not? Probably, but the lack of one at a Long Island Condo may not be the motivation all buyers are looking for.


Bottom Line: When it's time to move to a Long Island Condo with or without a garage, Lawrence "Larry" and Sheila Agranoff are REALTORS® to Call!

Good morning, Sheila and Larry... we have communities built all around Charlotte in the 1950's through the early 1980's that had no garages. But these days it seems people really want a garage if for no other reason than for storage.

Hello Sheila and Larry - determining property requirements, preferences and wishes if such things are a possibility is good for prospective buyers to share with their agent.  It's nice when everyone is on the same page.

Good morning Larry and Sheila. My first question, living in downtown Chicago is does the unit come with a garage! Enjoy your day!

Hi Larry and Sheila - that is certainly something to consider.  Some people must have a car in a garage.  Happens to be that I am one of them.

Having a garage is an amenity that I enjoy so if I were to ever purchase another home, it would likely need to include a garage.

Good morning, Larry and Sheila,

We have always had a garage, and a two car garage at that.  Happy Tuesday!

Good morning Sheila! Great point. In fact I have a buyer with a super bigt truck and I have to ask her in each home if her truck will fit.

Thank you all for your comments. Most buyers do want a garage, but there are plenty of communities that don't have any and they are popular too!
