How much does a garage cost? $20K? $40K? More?
It depends, upon your needs, features, the square footage you require and your budget. Last year the average cost spent on constructing a garage was more than $25,000. But if you are considering a new building, keep this in mind.
It’s easy to evaluate price. Just line up the builders, get the costs and compare. But focusing only on price puts you at risk. The risk of selecting an inferior option, one that doesn’t provide the value or meet your needs.
It Starts With Your Budget
If you have ever watched House Hunters or similar shows on HGTV, you’ve seen families with a small budget that want the best of everything. The real estate agent expresses concern over the inevitable compromise they’ll have to make. Either the family needs to up their budget or settle for less. So just like you were selected to appear on an HGTV show, before you start evaluating builders, define your budget.
