When it comes to selling and buying property, there are a few things that can bump up the value of a property. This is because certain things are sought after by buyers. One of the things that can help add value onto a house is a garage.
As more and more people own cars and owning two cars per household is now not uncommon, it is easy to see why having a garage is worth its weight in gold. People tend to dislike on the road parking as spaces can be difficult to find, especially right outside the house.
Garages are also a great space to have when it comes to security. People are rightly worried about crime and car theft is always something that can happen when cars are parked outside homes, and even on driveways, so having a garage is another extra bit of security, which also makes insurance payments cheaper!
If you want to make the most of your garage, it is possible to store plenty of things in there as well as your car. Look into specialist garage shelving from places like this shelving Ireland based company Rackzone and think outside the box about storage.
For example, when you are storing cars in the garage you can still utilise the walls as well as the ceilings for storing items such as bicycles. Fold out workbenches are also a great idea if you will also be using the garage as a workshop.
