Front doors and selling your home

Red Door

Red Doors help sell houses

When selling your home, your front door is one of the first features buyers will see while viewing your home. Most buyers will preview MLS listings  before they choose which homes they want to view in person. Your front door will either make your home stand out, or will fade into the background and possibly make your home look dull and dated.

I have often been asked what color sellers should paint their front doors, and in my experience it depends on the house style, the color and trim of the home, and the paticular demographic of the neighborhood.

However, I have found that red doors tend to help sell houses the fastest.

    You are exactly right about your curb appeal. Most people will initially judge your home based off of the outside of the house so if you want to attract viewers then you should upgrade the look of the front of your home. Thanks for the advice!

    I agree with painting your front door to make it look new. It will definitely help to give the buyers a good first impression. Nice blog and thanks for sharing.

Great people, great furniture, solid service. I've worked with Lenny and Lisa several times and haven't been disappointed yet. I truly believe my properties sell faster because of their staging work.
