It’s always good to recognize what projects get you the biggest bang for your buck when selling your home, like a garage door upgrade. We did some digging and found a couple tips on selling your home from Stacey Moncrieff of the National Association of Realtors (Realtor Mag) when getting your home ready to sell:
- Low-cost, easy projects often return greater value. For example, replacing your old garage door with a brand new, cost-efficient (but sturdy) steel garage door can return 101.8 percent nationally on average. In fact, Stacey says that “in 43 of the 102 markets surveyed, REALTORS® said the new door would recoup more than 100 percent of its cost. Other projects expected to top 100 percent payback in multiple markets: the midrange garage door replacement, the upscale garage door replacement, the midrange wood window replacement, and the minor kitchen remodel.” Other than the kitchen remodeling project, every other project dealt with minor adjustments, not full-blown renovations. There are many misconceptions on what it takes to get your home ready for sale, so keep track of those easily replaceable things and make them a top priority.
- Curb appeal matters. Replacements like new garage doors, new front doors, and new sliding doors can be money makers. Stacey notes that “the replacements that offer the greatest payback are the ones that are most obvious to buyers when they first view a house in person or online.”
There’s nothing that says “run away” more than the ugly exterior of a home. No matter how messy the inside of our houses are, the outside always makes us look a little more put together. A garage door upgrade is just one of many ways to sell buyers when they see your home.

They installed a brand new garage door for us. We purchased the whole package – opener, door etc. from Deluxe Door Systems. The end result is fantastic. Jeff was great to work with, the work was done the exact day it was suppose to be, and the pricing was very fair. I would highly recommend to them to friends and family.
