The increase in pet perks in the multifamily segment led to widespread social media buzz and news coverage, which in turn, spurred many homebuilders to jump on the bandwagon, according to Chad Collins, founder of Collins Design-Build, a custom builder in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. “Clients started bringing me images of what they were seeing on Pinterest and Houzz, so we began to include pet features in our single-family houses.” He began asking new clients about their family pets when meeting them for the first time. “We ask about the number and size, and future pets they hope to get,” he says, noting that around 95 percent of his clients own a pet. “Pets represent a member of the family, especially once children are grown and move away.”
Get an estimate so buyers can weigh the expense. Garage prices vary according to the size, style, materials, foundation required, storage options, types of doors, and who does the work—an architect, design-build firm, or contractor. A “typical” 20-by-20-foot, two-car, detached garage with vinyl siding and shingle roof usually ranges between $20,000 and $38,000, says Uday Khedkar, president of Danleys Garages in Northbrook, Ill. Popular improvements such as panelized wall and ceiling systems and snap-together floor tiles could add close to $10,000, says Skip Barrett, head of GarageTek in Plainview, N.Y. But prices can go much higher, even approaching median home prices. Chicago architect Allan J. Grant is currently designing a three-car, 30-by-20-foot freestanding garage with cedar shake siding, a concrete slab floor, heating, electrical outlets, and special doors on a North Shore suburban lot to match an Arts & Crafts style home. The contractors estimate came in at $250,000, Grant says. “We were all surprised,” he says.
