Deal Breaker?  “You ‘Betcha!”

“Garage Door Height” is a relatively new field on MLS — my recollection is that it only goes back 2-3 years.

Frankly, I’d always been puzzled why anyone cared.

NOW I Get it”

Not anymore.

Combine the “super-sizing” of pickup trucks the last few years; older housing stock (typically, in Minneapolis, St. Paul and their 1st-ring suburbs); and only a one-car garage — with low overhead, at that — and suddenly, it’s an important measurement for (at least some) Buyers to know.

And, therefore, for Sellers (and their agents) to provide . . .

P.S.:  In the same “deal breaker” category (sort of): a condo building’s pet policy.
