Today I found out a new reason for a garage when buying a new home.
Most buyers will want to park their cars. They will want to keep their cars clean from the rain and pollen and even dry from the snowstorms. That's normal.
Perhaps a tool bench will fill the rear of the garage. This way, the tools can be available for great building projects and it will be easy to clean up the mess. Every new home buyer wants to try their hand in repair and remodeling! That's normal.
Sometimes the new home buyer will want to have some work out equipment in the garage in front of where you park your car. They will have room for a bike and treadmill and perhaps even some weights. That's normal.
This particular buyer wanted to place netting up and practice his golf! I have never heard of this idea, but of course it would make all of the sense in the world for an avid golfer! This way, all winter he could move his car out, put up the netting, and just swing away. He even spoke of having friends over to also practice their golf swings. This is unusual for a new home buyer, but a cool idea.
Now, I ask you, why don't we women ever think of these necessities when we are out buying a new home?
