A double garage on Barnett Avenue has gone on the market for a cool $130,000.
“I know it sounds like an outrageous price for a garage,” said Rita Lowry of Welcome Home Real Estate, whose firm is listing the property. “But that is the market right now and those are the offers coming in. Parking is hard to find quickly around here.”
Lowry said that a single garage sold for $68,000 a few years back–to many people’s surprise. “They don’t come on the market very often and that is why I believe they are so desirable and sellers are able to get such high offers.”
Going rates for a rental of a single car garage in the area, according to several agents, runs from $175 to $250 per month.
