How Much of the Garage Door Is Your Curb Appeal?
At that first in-person meeting with your real estate agent, you’ll get the mandatory talk about first impressions and curb appeal. For example, if the outside of the house isn’t attractive, prospective buyers often assume the inside isn’t worth seeing.
Your agent will advise a little sprucing up, which should include a fresh coat of paint on the front door, clearing clutter from the front porch, and giving the garage door some much-needed attention. The view from the street matters!
Give your home’s curb appeal a boost. Read on and explore how much a new garage door helps create a great first impression.
Why You Should Care about Curb Appeal
There’s a reason why professionals in the real estate world put such a strong focus on curb appeal. It may not sell your home, but it will convert casual online views to in-person showings.
So, curb appeal helps your home attract the right kind of attention. But curb appeal may also help you fetch a higher selling price.
Did you know a home with great curb appeal tends to sell for an average of 7% more than one with an unattractive exterior?
In addition to boosting curb appeal, the return on investment when you install a new garage door isn’t too shabby either.
Your journey to selecting the best garage door should start with measuring the space where the new door(s) will go.
The Scoop on ROI and Installing a New Garage Door
Before jumping into any home improvement project, you’ll want to consider your return on investment (ROI). Things like adding a deck or an upscale master suite can’t touch the ROI on new garage doors.
Updating the garage door results in a 93.8% ROI. That’s almost a total return on investment!
It’s easy to see from looking at the ROI, updating or upgrading your home’s garage door isn’t going to sink you financially.
You’ll likely be able to recoup what you spend on a new door at closing.
Garage Doors Make a Statement
While we’re not going to judge you based on your style, we believe the garage door does make a statement. Whether your style is modern, traditional, or something in-between, the garage doors you choose, say a lot about you!
If you’ve decided to install a new garage door, you’ll have a wide range of materials and hardware options to choose from when matching the new door to your current homestyle.
Years ago, home sellers could maybe get away with not improving on a dingy garage door. In the past, many homes had a garage to the rear of the house. Out of view, out of mind, right?
That’s not the case today, as many home designers now make the garage door a prominent design feature. So when choosing a new door, you’ll look at more than the garage door cost.
The entire package, including materials, color, and hardware, should create a welcoming appeal to buyers.
Speaking of Color
If you take a swing around your neighborhood, you’ll likely see many white garage doors. Maybe you love the brighter, sunnier colors, but when it comes to curb appeal, you want to draw buyer’s eyes for the right reasons.
White garage doors create a crisp, clean look—one that complements most any home design. It’s not only a classic garage door color. Bright white doors play a significant role in curb appeal.
That said, there are other top color choices for garage doors. For example, if your style is chic and classy, consider one of the many shades of gray. Black doors make a hip, trendy impression.
Before you change the garage door color, look at the front door. You don’t want matching doors, especially if you’ve painted the front door in a shade of purple, red, or orange. Also, bold, bright colors look distracting on large surfaces.
Do yourself, your neighbors, and potential home buyers a favor. Create intentional contrast between the garage door, the trim, and the other exterior colors of your house.
How Not to Confuse Buyers
Before you install a new garage door, you want to make sure the door style makes sense. The carriage house-style door you’ve dreamed of since you were a child? Unfortunately, it might not work in your home!
Say you’re selling your mid-century modern home. Would the ornate carriage-house garage doors clash with the architecture of your home? We think so.
Now, if your home is a Victorian, Spanish Colonial, Tudor, or craftsman, carriage house-style doors will create stunning curb appeal.
Be careful about mixing design elements. You don’t want to make your buyers wonder about the architectural style of your home. Instead, use that curb appeal to draw them in with a garage door that compliments your home’s design.
Should I Upgrade the Automatic Garage Door Opener?
Now, you’re excited about the possibilities installing a new garage door can bring to the successful sale of your home. But, don’t forget one essential feature home buyers love—automation!
The beautiful new door will turn buyers’ eyes toward your home. But, when they finally step into the garage and test-drive the garage door opener, what will they find?
If your door opener makes screeching, squealing sounds as it tries to move up and down the misaligned rails, it’s a red flag for buyers. Likewise, when a tired old garage door opener struggles to lift the new garage door, it’s a painful sight (and sound).
While it’s not exactly considered curb appeal, after all, buyers won’t see the new opener from the street; it’s essential if you hope to add a little more value to your home.
The fresh new garage door gets buyers at least to the front door. A brand new automatic garage door opener is like the icing on the cake! It’s a feature you don’t want to take for granted.
