New American home exterior.
Posted by: admin on December 9, 2013
Your home is a very special place where you and your family will create treasured memories to last a lifetime. Yet at the same time, your home is also almost certainly your biggest financial asset. And that means it’s in your best interest to ensure that every improvement you make boosts your home’s curb appeal, if and when you decide to sell.
In case you aren’t familiar with the term, “curb appeal” refers to how attractive prospective buyers find your home. Naturally, the more enticed and exited they are by what they see, the better it is for you! What’s more, folks who think that your home has plenty of curb appeal are more likely to make an offer sooner rather than later, in order to avoid missing out on a great opportunity.

So, now that you know the importance curb appeal, the question is: how can you boost it in an affordable, yet dramatic way? Of course, the answer is simple: install a new garage door!

Indeed, there are many reasons why a new garage door boosts your home’s curb appeal. Here are the top 4:

1. A new garage door lets your home make a dazzling first impression.
Believe it or not, but many prospective buyers either fall in – or out – of love with a home within the first few seconds of seeing it. A new garage door makes a dazzling first impression and sets the tone for what could be a very rewarding and profitable home selling experience for you. What’s more, top quality garage doors (such as the ones we offer) are made to look amazing for years and years – so even if it’s not brand new a decade from now, it’ll still look great!

2. A new garage door signifies “pride of ownership.”
Prospective buyers are constantly looking for clues, symptoms and signals about whether a home is truly a low-maintenance dream – or potentially a fixer-upper nightmare. A new garage door instantly sends the message that you have plenty of “pride of ownership,” and that the only surprises prospective buyers might come across are the welcome variety; not the shocking kind.

3. A new garage door makes your home more affordable.
Regardless of what price your home lists for – whether it’s a few hundred thousand, or a few million or higher – a new garage door makes your home more affordable, since it tells prospective buyers that they won’t have to worry about unnecessarily high energy costs due to an inadequately insulated and/or fitted garage door. That means lower heating bills in the winter, and lower cooling bills in the summer. Add it up, and it’s just another reason to help your home stand out from the pack and attract the best offers.

4. A new garage door increases your home security.
Prospective buyers aren’t just interested in how a home looks; naturally, they’re also interested in security. A new garage door gives them peace of mind in knowing that burglars are going to have a heck of a tough time getting it open – which means they’ll very likely move on to another target, as they take the path of “least resistance.”

Improve and Invest at the Same Time
Ultimately, what makes adding a new garage door such a smart move is that it isn’t just a way to improve your home, or a way to invest in its future resale value: it’s both at the same time!
