What Does Your Garage Door Mean to You in a Hot Real Estate Market? Plenty Says Tommy Mello

Published on October 31, 2022

The residential real estate market continues to scorch through new records like midsummer heat, with prices, demand, and sales rates continuing to rise at a blistering pace. Residential real estate markets across the U.S. remain at a hot velocity, meaning that repair contractors like Tommy Mello have their work cut out for them this year.

Mello, owner and CEO of Phoenix-based A1 Garage Door Service, knows that your garage door is “the smile of your home.” More importantly, it becomes a pivotal factor when buying and selling residential properties. Mello founded A1 Garage in 2007 in Phoenix and has since expanded his operation to include 19 markets around the U.S. – all of which are experiencing high demand and commanding record sales prices.

In many markets around the U.S., real estate prices have increased by 30 to 50 percent in the past year alone, all in correlation with explosive demand for high-end residential property. As such, Mello sees A1 garage door services as a critical factor in this surge. Why? Because having a well-maintained garage door offers not only protected storage with huge curb appeal, but also a significant amount of value of your home.

Whether you are buying, selling, or staying, there is no debate on the value that a sound and aesthetically pleasing garage door adds to your home. How much value is contingent on factors like location, geography, weather, and the surrounding neighborhood, but it is clear that having a beautiful and fully operational garage door is vital regardless. Remodeling Magazine, for instance, finds that a new garage door can return homeowners more than 90 percent on their investment. That’s more than kitchen and bath upgrades, which average about 70 percent ROI.

As a result, you need a repair and maintenance team you can trust to be dedicated to your homeowner goals. That’s where Mello and his team earn their keep, helping homeowners across the United States to add value to their homes and achieve their dreams. Like a cool breeze on a hot summer’s day, A1 Garage Door and Mello provide customers with a refreshing approach that is client centric.

After performing a thorough inspection of the garage door down to the mechanics and circuits, Mello and his team work closely with their clients, using comprehensive terminology to explain what needs to be repaired and what doesn’t. This is a stark contrast from traditional methods of trying to run up the bill as much as possible with terms that may as well be a different language.

A1 on the other hand is a breath of fresh air in the industry, putting greater emphasis on making clients happy than making unnecessary repairs to receive a greater payout. Between dedication to peerless customer service and their long track record of stunning results, A1 is the obvious choice for adding value to your home without bankrupting yourself along the way. After all, renovated kitchens and bathrooms are well and good, but what’s the point of any of that if your home has a broken smile? Trust is the most important aspect of any business as Mello shows
