Increase The Value Of Your Garage

Hey! That old garage could be worth money! If you’re like most American homeowners, you fill your garage with crap and let your car sit out in the rain. This is stupid. Stop doing this. By cleaning up your garage and making it into a useful space, you can increase the value of your home and protect the value of your car. (Psst, a good garage can add 14% to the value of your home, according to Bankrate.)

For some, elbow grease is the only cost. Make sure there’s room to park the cars and clean up the oil spots!—MEGHANN MARCO
