Hello everybody! Welcome back to Suburban Snacks, where we not only inform you of current Real Estate topics but we also review a different food item every month! This month’s snack is…Tamarindo Bars! Before we review the snack, we’ll be informing you on the hottest trends of the most overlooked feature in a home in 2022, which is the garage! When it comes to a garage, most people won’t need the space to house 12 cars like expensive homes in Los Angeles. There are two main changes going on with garages according to NAR Magazine. One of those changes is fairly typical and that’s using your garage space for storage. The other popular change is totally converting the garage into either a retreat, home office, or gym. One advantage of converting a garage, especially when it’s attached to the home, is that it is typically an easy and affordable transformation. The space is often already outfitted with electrical outlets and weatherproofing. One trend is certain for new-home construction as well: Fewer new houses come without a garage of some kind. Developer Jeff Benach of Chicago-based Lexington Homes says he no longer brings to market a single-family house or townhouse without a garage that offers more than a single bay. He also won’t design one with a tandem layout, where cars line up behind one another. Some features becoming more popular within the modern garage include windows, EV charging stations, interior floor and walls, organized storage, and car lifts. As a local Real Estate Brokerage, we can inform you that organized storage within a garage is definitely an attractive feature to most home buyers. They love the idea of having space to not only park their cars, but space to store all of their belongings so that they don’t have to get a storage unit or occupy the interior space of their home. So, if you are someone looking to invest in a home with organized storage in the garage then we at Suburban would love to help! Do you like… tamarindo bars? Let us know in the comments below.
