It is now the year 2017 and you may have some plans for your home this year. If you want to sell it or refinance it, then you will want to raise the value of your home. One way to do this is replacing your old garage door with a nice, new one. This has many benefits even if you do not plan to sell your home. What is it worth, though? You are probably wondering how this will give you a return profit. The first thing to remember is that not all returns are made of cash. Some come as benefits to you. In this case, though, there are actually a few ways to get your money back after getting a brand new garage door installed. We will explain.
Cash Back After A Sale Or Refinance
Do you know what can happen to your home’s value by having an old and beat up garage door? Let’s just say that it’s rather negative. Actually, it is downright bad! On average, a garage door replacement costs homeowners about $1800.00. How much can not replacing your garage door cost you in your home’s worth? Try around $2800.00 to $3600.00! Property appraisers are getting paid, normally by the buyer or county to make your home worth as little as possible. They are not going to jack up the worth of your home without good reason. This is especially true when one comes in during a refinance. They essentially work for your mortgage company and they will not cut you a break.
What Are The Other Benefits To You?
If that was not good enough reason to replace your old garage door, then we have a few more good reasons for you. If your garage door was put in more than a decade and a half ago, then it is likely a huge safety hazard. Not just to your kids or your either, but also to your car and other personal property. New garage doors come with all kinds of safety features that prevent things like that from happening. You might spend $1500 on a new garage door now, but that is a much better than having to replace your car’s windshield for no good reason at all. It is literally good business sense to replace your garage door.
