Today we have a really good question for our Realtors and appraisers. A longtime reader, first-time writer from Casa View Haven:
We’ve been talking about converting our garage to a living room and I’m getting concerned about what it might do to our value. We need more space, but don’t know where to start!
I am trying to get answers from the city on the details of permitting, and so far it sounds difficult, time-consuming and expensive — just for the permit.
Well, in our experience, the best place to start is with contractors. We have a short list of the best builders and remodelers in Dallas, which is a great place to launch your home renovation or custom builder search. But what do you think about garage conversions? Will they help or hurt a home’s value?
