Steps to Selling Your Home

Step 3:  What does your Threshold say about your home?

As part of spurcing up the exterior of your home don't forget the front door.  It might need a good cleaning to give it that sparkle, but if the door/framing or screen door are damaged then you will want to replace them.

To set the overall tone and enhance curb appeal consider the following:

  • Choose an entry door that matches the architectural style of your home and accessory features to complement its design.
  • Acheive a truly customized look with wood carvings that add artistic detail or enhance design.
  • Choose an entry door made of a hardwood for a fine crafted furniture grade quality.
  • Create a dramatic entrance that accommodates taller ceilings with an entry door of significant proportions.
  • Dressing up your door with the right accessories places the finishing touches on your customized entrance.

I always recommend that my clients remove their front screen door if they have one. The difference in curb appeal is amazing. And I remind the sellers that the front door is where the buyers stand, waiting for the Realtor to unlock the door, and as they look around, the first impressions they get are the expectations that they cary into the house.
