Home Staging: Garage Doors can Kill Curb Appeal

Garage doors account for as much as 40% of the front of a house.

When you’re getting ready to sell a house, and you want to enhance curb appeal, check the garage door.

Paint it, repair it, or replace it.

“Garage door replacements are expected to return more than 71% of cost upon resale of the house,” according to the 2011-2012 Remodeling Cost vs. Value report.

Keep the garage door closed. From the street, open garage doors are unsightly maws, revealing unattractive contents.

That's very good point, not a lot of agents or home sellers pay much attention to garage doors. But it's one thing you can do to improve the curb appeal at low cost.
