Here in South Scottsdale the Garage Office Realtor says Paint the Front Door if you are selling your home. In South Scottsdale we have a lot of older homes and over the years the weather has taken it's toll on the front door, yet when folks get ready to sell their home they over look the value of having a well trimmed out Front Door.
Folks get so focused on what to do on the inside of their home and the backyard that they forget the Front Door. The Front Door is First Impression and if it looks like a piece of junk that is exactly what the Buyers are expecting to find on the inside, and along with that thought they are upset that they are wasting their time to come and view the home. So take the door hardware off (if it is old buy some new hardware), prep the door (sanding, caulking, primer paint...whatever is needed), then put on the finishing paint or varnish, put on as many coats of paint or varnish as it takes to make the door look terrific, let the coating thoroughly dry, and then reinstall your door hardware. Now step back and view your work. You will be very pleased and you know what? "Garage Office Realtor says, "Buyers Notice It".
