Garage? Yes, Please!

Winter is here! That also means snow and ice and all that comes with inclement weather in New England. If you are in the market for a new home, you may be interested in learning about the current homes for sale that come with garages. Having a garage can provide a number of benefits, including protecting your car from the elements, providing extra storage space, and even increasing the value of your home.

While a home with a garage in Greater Newburyport comes at a premium price, there are a few great options currently on the market!

Other Garage Considerations

There are some additional things to consider when it comes to finding your dream home with a garage.

Consider the size of the garage. While having a garage is great, it's important to make sure that it can actually accommodate your vehicle(s) and any other items you plan on storing in it. Make sure to take measurements and think about how much space you'll realistically need!  While limited, there are some homes in Greater Newburyport with as many as 3 to 4 garage spaces!

The finishes are also important. For example, do you prefer an expoxy floor in the garage?

Think about the layout. Consider how the garage is situated in relation to the rest of the house. Is it easily accessible from the main living areas? Will you have to walk through the garage to get inside the house?

Think about resale value: While you may not be thinking about selling your home anytime soon, it's always a good idea to consider the potential resale value of any home you're looking at. Homes with garages generally have a higher resale value than those without, so keep that in mind when making your decision!
