Every home is different as is every buyer and seller. While everyone understands that no home is perfect, what are some of the things that are "deal killers"? Getting more specific, can a driveway kill a deal?
The Driveway is a Deal Killer
Around greater Atlanta, this is a rather common home design. Here, the garage doors open perpendicular to the front of home. The parking pad is directly in the area where the front yard might be. This is a very common design when lots are narrow; turning the doors inward allows for a narrower foot print.
Driveways and Appeal
It's completely reasonable to say that the driveway and garage area of the home is one of the most used areas of the home. Multiple times a day, everytime anyone comes or goes. Everytime Amazon, UPS or DoorDash comes by; everytime the garbage cans need to be hauled in and out. It's fair to say that driveways impact the value and appeal of a home.
Owners use driveways every day...walking up and down...trash cans...pets...kids...
