Ideas to Make Your Front Porch Attract More BuyersIdeas to Make Your Front Porch Attract More Buyers in a Snap

First impressions matter a lot when it comes to enticing potential buyers to check out a Ballantyne house for sale. If you currently have a front porch with dull colors and no comfortable furniture, it’s time to add some pizzazz. Check out these ideas to make your front porch attract more buyers so that they want to linger much longer!

A New Front Door

The front door of a house for sale in Ballantyne can either depress or impress a buyer! If the door itself lacks character, consider investing in a new one with extra character to truly wow visitors.

If this isn’t in your budget, simply repaint. For example, if the rest of your house is a neutral color, consider a bright and bold door so it really pops. You can also coordinate the color of the door with the porch furniture to tie it all together.

A Welcoming Doormat

Investing in a quality doormat does more than just keep dirt and debris out of a home for sale in Ballantyne. It adds texture to the entry and infuses a cozy feel.

However, makes sure to keep the mat immaculate. There’s nothing worse than walking up to a house for sale and seeing gobs of dead leaves and dirt plastered to the mat.

Greenery for the Win

Potted plants and topiaries are charming additions to a fabulous front porch! It is best to use oversized pots, and plants such as ferns so they can be seen clearly from the street. Additionally, remember to match your pots with the overall style and color scheme of your home.

Create an Outdoor Living Room

Essentially, you want your front porch in a Ballantyne home for sale to be an outdoor living room. Therefore, decorate as you would inside, but choose furniture that holds up when exposed to the elements.

For example, add rugs for extra comfort and texture. Hang curtains for added privacy and so you can enjoy your porch no matter how direct the sun may be.

Curb appeal - either ya got it or you don't/  Too many drive aways makes it hard to sell a property.  An inviting front porch gets 'em in the door.  Great ideas.  Thanks
