"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.

"Thank you Jill for following up on this. I tried to write a review but had trouble so will be happy to do the cut and paste for you. I am in the stunned stage. I actually woke up to a dream about the house this morning. There were always so many things to deal with regarding the properties, it's shocking to have that release. Greydon is staying in touch and mailing a few things I asked him to get from the house. He said that Heather is very nice and is interested in restoring the place. His daughter moved in with him and they are allowed to continue to rent and maintain the lawn. She's not moving in for a couple of months while they work on it.
Jill Calderone helped me sell my unusual 200 year old farmhouse in a national forest. This meant she had to drive over a hundred miles to service the property. Unlike most other realtors, she never complained about that or let it hinder her in doing her job. She is a wonderfully cheerful person who than more than stepped up to the plate. She went beyond the call of duty and spent hours at the property helping me do things I was unable to do myself. Her honesty and communication skills are admirable and certainly qualities one wants wherever your house is located. I highly recommend to anyone that Jill is the realtor for you. She and Exit Realty are my hero's, I know you will be satisfied with a job well done.
