A Garage-to-Gym or Living Space Conversion
For a fitness lover, a garage-to-gym conversion might seem like a wonderful idea. To parents of a millennial who just moved back home, a garage-to-apartment conversion probably seems like a genius idea. But keep in mind, your future homebuyers might not agree.
Many people search for houses with a garage, and what they’re looking for isn’t a gym or an extra living space — they’re looking for a garage to serve its primary purpose of housing cars and storage items.
In fact, in a recent survey of 7,500 people, 74 percent of recent buyers said that having a garage is extremely or very important, according to MarketWatch.
If you must use your garage space as a gym or as extra living space, be sure future homeowners can easily and inexpensively remove the renovations.
