Freshen Your Front Door
The Front door says a lot about a home. Paint the front door and casing and notice how the white door casing makes a door pop! Dress up your front door by cleaning off any dirty spots around the knob, and use metal polish on the door fixtures. Your entry should also reflect the home's interior, so choose a wreath that reflects your personal style. Set the tone for the rest of your home with a welcoming entry featuring a clear path to your front door, an attractive porch, a fresh welcome mat and well-tended greenery.
Add new lighting or spruce up what you have
Walkway lights and garage sconces will illuminate the walk and driveway, and cast a glow on your home. If you’re trying to sell your home, many home buyers drive through neighborhoods at night to check safety and traffic patterns. Ensure your home won’t be hidden in the shadows.
Add shutters or accent trim
Shutters and trim add a welcoming layer of beauty to your home's exterior and they can give a new look to any home.
Dress up the driveway and sidewalks
Freshen up the driveway by making sure weeds are not peeking through the cracks and repairing what you can on the driveway. The sidewalk should be clean and fresh plants, flowers and bushes in the flower beds.
Fresh coat of paint on the front porch
It is amazing how much the front of the home will glow with a fresh coat of paint and a pot or two of flowering plants.
If you follow these tips you will have a better chance of getting more buyers through the front door and therefore a better chance of getting a better offer.
