Are you buying a new construction home? Then there is little chance that a garage has actually been built on the house. In most cases you have to do it with a simple ramp.
Do you really want to add value to the home? Build (or have built) a garage. Sounds like quite an investment, but you certainly get a lot in return. The costs of having a garage built vary from €10,000 to €19,000.
