A new garage door opener boosts your resale value

April 5, 2022
If you are planning on selling your home, you are likely engaged in a variety of improvements to increase the curb appeal and sale price your house. Don’t overlook the benefit of a new garage door opener for your Akron or Canton home.

Most homeowners are aware of the benefit of replacing the garage door, an investment that statistics show will bring a nearly 100% return when the house is sold. But an old opener that is noisy or inefficient lifting the new door, or no opener at all, can be a big deterrent for a potential buyer. An upgrade or addition of a new, modern opener, especially one with smart technology, can make a big difference in resale value.

While the benefit of adding a new garage door can be measured in actual dollars, upgrading your garage door opener is also measured in emotional return on investment. Consider the following:

  • Potential buyers will be looking for the security that comes with a new, modern garage door opener. An attached garage can be a significant security risk that homeowners today can avert with secure locking and keypad entry features provided by today’s garage door openers.
  • Smart technology continues to be in high demand in our modern society, with many homeowners wanting the option of controlling their garage doors remotely and programming doors and lights to open, close, and turn on or off at specified times. Smart garage door openers offer Wi-Fi connections, options for integrated cameras, and links with apps that allow the user to receive packages or let someone inside remotely—all highly valued by today’s home buyers.
  • Even for detached garages, a garage door opener provides the convenience of a button for accessing vehicles and coming and going as well as security for items stored in the garage.
