Everyone Loves a Porch!


Home Buyers Absolutely Love Porches!





This Front Porch Was the Envy of the Neighborhood

Everyone seems to love having a porch.  Front, side or back, they are a highly desirable feature for home buyers. Home Buyers absolutely love porches.  One of the features on the must have list for many of today's home buyers.

This is a beautiful home that Joyce Marsh, Luxury Real Estate Specialist in Ormond Beach Sold not just once, but 2 times at 8 Broadwater, Ormond Beach Florida 32174. 

One of the most desirable features of this Ormond Beach Florida home was the beautiful front porch.  The owners made their front porch the envy of the neighborhood by adding inviting furnishings, and beautiful accessories that not only enhanced the front porch but added a contemporary element to the otherwise more traditional designed home.

Porches add curb appeal and entice home buyers to come inside and take a peek at the home.  The key is to make your porch as inviting as the interior spaces. 

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Accent Furniture
  • Cocktail Table
  • Accessories from garage sales or flea markets
  • Furniture from inside your home can be repurposed
  • Outdoor area rugs
  • Fresh Flowers and potted plants
  • Add Colorful Throw Pillows
  • Mildew resistant linens
  • Lifestyle Enhancements

Morning Joyce, what a beautiful photo and front porch! First impressions are critical and with a great entrance like this one, I can see why you were able to sell the home and I suspect you were able to do it quickly. Happy Sunday!

Good morning Joyce. When I lived in Florida, the outdoor space was in the rear of the home with the pool. Now in an apartment in the sky in downtown Chicago, my choice was made by the size of the balconies. Luckily, I have a large one on onne side and a smaller on the other side. Nothing like the city views from both. Enjoy your day!

Curb appeal.  This needs to be the first staging done.  If the outside doesn't look inviting it doesn't matter what the inside is like
