Two car drive or single garage?

We have space for two cars but want a garage. Will a garage add value if you are left with a small drive for one small car? The garage will only fit one small car too. Would this put people off buying the house in the future? As it stands there is room for two decent size cars but with garage it will be a squeeze, we just want a garage for storage really and our small car will be parked outside, just fitting on what will be left of our drive. Our concern is when it comes to sell, the arrangement might not be as appealing to families with medium to large cars. Just want an opinion as to whether it is worth the money of building a garage in a tight spot leaving little off road parking.

  • It might interest you to know that garage conversions have increased dramatically since the housing slump. Mainly because people that need more space are converting their garage and doing so add between 8%-14% to the value of their property. In answer to your question, go for 1 garage that will always add value and if converted will add even more value.

  • I personally would choose a garage over a parking space, even if it was too small for a large car, storage is essential. I agree, build the garage. Garages always add value.

  • Go for the garage as buyers will pay more for it than just parking, most people will use the garage as you are for storage.
