Not enough information... Are you adding the garage to a 1 bedroom home (seems overkill...) or to a 4 bedroom home (seems about right)?  Is it attached or detached?  Is this standard or sub-standard for your neighborhood?

As someone said previously, we'd need to look at the market comps.

It depends on your neighborhood. I see a two and a half car garage as a huge bonus. If the homes in your neighborhood all have garages and yours does not than your home will be worth less. Are you thinking about building such a garage and are concerned with return on your investment?  Of course a garage will add value and also add to your tax bill but will you see a 100% return? probably not. 
 Are you in Plymouth MA.  The cost of construction is high around here so a sizable garage like yours could cost $50,000 and up.
 What you should do is look at similar homes in your area that sold and compare the prices between the ones with and ones without garages and that will give you an idea.

Thanks for posting your question on Zillow.com.

No real dollar value.  We'd have to look at comps.
