Associate's Spotlight: Hollywood Crawford Garage Doors
As all REALTORS® know, eye-catching garage doors greatly enhance the curb appeal of any property and they will often recommend to their sellers that older, worn out garage doors be replaced. According to the 2018 Remodeling vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com), an upscale garage door replacement has the highest return on investment of any home improvement project in the nation, recouping an average 98.3 percent of costs – up 18.6% over last year.
Hollywood-Crawford recently opened a new 2,000 square foot showroom with 44 garage doors on display to help homeowners choose the perfect garage door to enhance the value and curb appeal of their home. In January 2018, Clopay, a major garage door manufacturer, partnered with an independent research firm to conduct its own nationwide survey to gauge REALTOR® perceptions about the garage door category, and to determine if garage door appearance made a difference in the listing price they would assign to a house. Here’s what they said:
• 70 percent of REALTORS® agree that a new garage door helps sell a home faster.
• Over 80 percent of REALTORS® believe a new garage door can impact home value.
• REALTORS® estimate that upgrading a garage door can increase the perceived selling price of a home by up to 4%, depending on the style*
• With the average U.S. home price estimated at $206,300 in 2017, this can mean an incremental increase of $8,000 to $14,000, just because of the garage door.
