A new website has been brought to my attention —
Parking Spotter is a site designed to bring parking landlord (or owner) and potential parking renter (or buyer) together. It has great possibilities, but today not enough people are using the site.
A condo listing without parking in a “parking-poor” neighborhood like Lincoln Park is a tough sell. Buyers today want parking spots, even if they don’t own a car today. It’s like buying a home in a good school district without kids — you know it improves the saleability of the home in the future. If a seller could identify potential car parking options to buyers through Parking Spotter, their home’s saleability would increase dramatically.
Homeowners often have 2 cars in a one-car housing situation, so they, too, could benefit from this site.
There’s even a way to customize the page to your neighborhood and parking needs. The site offers updates so you can be notified when something becomes available that matches your needs.
I have no interest in selling garage spaces, but I do want my buyers and sellers to have access to information on where they can keep their cars — this site could be fantastic.
