Help buyers visualize what a garage might look like. A motivated seller may be willing to pay a design professional to draw a detailed plan of a new garage with several elevations, says Horch. Klein, whose firm regularly designs garages, charges $2,500 to $5,000 for most construction documents, with the fee dependent on complexity. It may be tempting to go with a generic plan, but Kingston, N.Y.-based appraiser Gregory Dodge says its important to offer a one in sync with the homes size and value rather than one that overimproves the house. “Youd suggest something very different for a $200,000 versus $700,000 house,” he says. Pavony likes to include a digital version of the plan in her online marketing as well.
While Victorian-style homes (generally any house built during the reign of Queen Victoria, between 1837 and 1901) are equated more with romance than practicality, Spindler says they confer several structural advantages. Their old-growth redwood is less vulnerable to pests and earthquakes than newer homes framing. But there are also drawbacks. Victorians were almost always built without electrical service, so sometimes original gas pipes havent been turned off or may have residual gas in their lines after theyve been capped. This can be an issue for workers who might be cutting into old lines. And while many love the feeling of 11-foot ceilings, itll take more steps to get to the next floor, and painting and changing lightbulbs can be more involved. But (especially since many of the architectural plans for these homes were destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906) being aware and offering insights to clients about such positives and negatives are just part of the job of a style specialist, and Spindler embraces her role as adviser. “None of them come with manuals,” Spindler says. “Its an exploratory process.”
