Converting this valuable space provides extra room and can increase your property’s value. Whether you should convert your garage or not will depend on how often you use it and what you use it for. 

If you have no other parking on your property and frequently use the space, it will likely be more valuable to you to stay as it is. However, a conversion can expand your living space if you rarely use your garage and have plenty of other parking spots.
