Building a garage in Orlando adds value to your home?
Much like the rest of the state of Florida, the area around the city of Orlando sees its fair share of intense sunlight and drenching rainstorms. People can easily weather this abuse from Mother Nature because they have the option of stepping inside to get away from the relentless weather.
Automobiles and other vehicles, however, do not fare so well. For this reason, it makes good sense to have a garage on your property for storing your car when not in use.
While parking space is generally the primary reason for a homeowner building a garage, there are other equally valid ones. Below are just a few suggestions. All of them bring true value to the property both personally and financially.
Storage space –For most folks, no matter the size of their home, there never really seems to be enough storage space. It starts out neat and organized but eventually degrades into a mess. A garage storage space will give you a brief respite from this problem and may even encourage you to throw a few things away instead of continuing to store them.
Playroom space – Kids… can’t live without ’em and can’t lock ’em in a closet. A playroom space in the garage is an excellent solution to this conundrum. The kids can be as rowdy and noisy as they like without getting on your nerves. A garage space is also safe and secure from the weather and other undesirable elements.
Hobby space – Whether you are model train enthusiast or an “arts and “crafts” type of person, it is always nice to have a dedicated space for your hobby. A garage space is also ideal because it allows you to get away from the normal routine of the main house and concentrate on your hobby… if only for a few minutes.
Rental space – Orlando is home to a thriving tourist industry. This fact means lot of kids looking for a cheap place to live that is near to their work. Adding a small apartment to the top of your garage can generate a fairly significant income from this demographic. The addition of this extra living space will also add value to the property overall.
