Do Garage Floors Help Sell Homes? Sometimes!

By
Real Estate Agent with Ventana Coastal Properties - www.FindCARealEstate.com

There is no doubt in my mind that the right garage floors help sell homes. True to stereotype, many home buyers go straight to the garage to see if the garage says “wow” – this is especially true of a certain gender of buyer – you know who you are! As an Orange County Real Estate Broker, I see it all – cracked oil stained garage floors, painted garage floors, and EPOXY GARAGE FLOORS that are made to look like granite. Which one do you think says wow? If you guessed the garage with the epoxy floor coating you guessed right!! Of course great looking garage storage cabinets are an added plus to complete the look.

Inspired by what I have seen in the market and in my neighborhood, I am taking on this home improvement project in my own home. My experiment will start with a single car garage and if all goes well, I will complete an additional 3-car garage. Total cost will be approximately $800/per single garage - $3200 total. Will it add value to my home? Do buyers expect a high level of finish on higher end homes? I think the answer is yes.

There is nothing better than a beautiful garage floor. You're showing a house, the buyers are liking it, then you open the garage door and *BAM,* beautiful garage? SOLD!

David, An epoxy floor in my garage is on my wish list.  I love a neat and clean garage.  If the rest of the house has a WOW factor the garage could seal the deal and likely at a higher price.

Dave- sorry to get here so late, but congrats on the Feature and an excellent post. Before we sold our home in Leesburg, my husband put baseboards in the garage and painted the trim as well as the floor.  Garages do sell homes.

Good morning Dave - I love epoxy floors and I love nice clean garages. While a less than perfect garage floor might not break the sale, a great floor could make it!
