Front Door Curb Appeal

Front Door Curb Appeal

"What does  your Front Door say? Come on in, or run away?"

A topic I love discussing is how to prep a home for sale.  Consider it’s time to sell your home. You'll think about the cleanliness of the interior, the curb appeal of the exterior, but have you thought about your front door? What does your front door say to prospective Buyers? A Buyer arrives to take a closer look at your home that is listed for sale – Are they excited about walking over your door’s threshold to see what’s inside?

Go ahead and try this yourself; exit your home through the front door, turn around and what do you see?

  • Do you see dirt and grime

  • Do you see cobwebs?

  • Do you see chipped paint?

  • Do you see a scratched up door handle?

  • Do you see loose or missing screws from the door hardware or foot plate?

  • Do nearby pots of plants show dead and wilted plant life?

  • What about your welcome mat – is it making visitors think twice about entering your home

If the answer to any of these questions are “Yes”, then I’d recommend that you remove the dirt, grime and cobwebs. Paint your door or replace it. Replace your door handle. Replace or tighten missing screws. Plant brightly colored, lovely, living plants in fresh new pots near your door. Replace your welcome mat, so it really does welcome visitors. If your home has a front porch be sure to stage it to show your porch to be a place where memories are created while relaxing on your porch.
