Emphasize other, non-vehicular storage options. Many buyers put almost as much stock in a garage for storing possessions as they do for parking their cars. If a sellers home doesnt have a garage, ask what other storage exists within the house—in a basement, attic, or closets—and tout these in your marketing. For houses that dont have impressive storage options, you may want to research nearby off-site storage facilities. Converting back. The price to return a garage to its original status will depend on its size and quality, how elaborate its become, and the areas labor costs. For downtown Albuquerques smaller garages, Beecher estimates a cost of $3. But in more expensive markets such as Chicago, the cost could run 20 times that. “Youd have to gut the room, remove any overlaid floor structure to get back to the concrete, and reframe the front wall to accommodate a new overhead garage door,” says Klein. For buyers—and even some sellers reluctant to “undo” finished interior square footage—Roach suggests a compromise: Convert half the garage for a single car and leave the rest for residential use.
But paring down isnt for everyone. Many of the 400 amateur gardeners who open their colorful, quirky, original gardens in Buffalo, N.Y.s annual Garden Walk Buffalo weekend event each July disregard the simplicity mantra. Graphic designer Jim Charlier, who participates yearly, recently co-authored the book Buffalo-Style Gardens (St. Lynns Press, 2019) with garden writer Sally Cunningham. He designed his small garden for eating and entertaining, planted a collection of climbing plants to block neighboring homes, and built a green potting shed that mimics his 1897 green Dutch Colonial-style home to hold tools. The pedigree of a garden featured on the 25-year-old tour—the largest of its type in the country—definitely helps to sell homes, Charlier says.
