Selling your home is all about getting the best price for it. There are a number of ways you can improve the appeal and value of your home. One of the most effective is replacing your current garage door with a new one.
3 Benefits a Garage Door Provides to Home Sellers
There are three primary benefits that replacing your garage door provides to you as the home seller. By highlighting these to potential home buyers, you’ll have a stronger bargaining position and the ability to justify your asking price.
Increases Curb Appeal
The fact that a new garage door increases the curb appeal of your home works both in your favor and in favor of the new owner. A replacement garage door accentuates the look of your home and catches the eye of those driving along your street.
Once you’ve sold the home, the new owners will enjoy the appealing look of a well-maintained home. The pride that the new homeowners will feel because of their beautiful home is priceless.
Boost Energy Savings
Whether a home buyer is in the market for their first home or they’ve purchased one previously, reducing their energy costs is nearly always a concern. Regardless of the age or style of the home, unless proactive measures are taken, a great deal of energy loss could occur at the garage door.
Replacing your old garage door with a model that is insulated offers significant energy savings. This is an especially important step if your garage is climate controlled.
The feeling of security that a homeowner feels inside their home is improved with the addition of a new garage door. Not only does it serve to protect the family who lives there, but it also keeps their belongings safe as well.
Some garage doors enabled so it’s easier for the homeowner to know what’s happening at the home even if they are thousands of miles away. With the user-friendly OHD Anywhere app, the homeowner will know if the garage door is open, closed or if it has changed position.
This handy feature also allows the homeowner to open the garage door for others, such as repair personnel, friends, or delivery drivers, instead of providing them with the access code. This multi-feature app also enables the user to access each opener’s history for increased safety and security.
