The importance of the entrance to your home when it comes to selling

Selling your home on the market can be quite stressful because you do not know exactly what people are looking for. The only thing that you have any inclination about is that you’re going to have to fix of your house in order to make your home look nice. There are several ways to go about doing this so that the potential buyer can walk right in your home and say they want to buy it when you’re going to have to make sure that you have everything in order.

When it comes to selling your home what is the one thing that many people look at before they even get out of the car? When people usually pull up a new driver to look at your house the first thing that they notice is the front door or entrance to the house. Many people do not realize that this can turn away potential buyers if something is out of the ordinary or just does not look very good from a distance. When you’re trying to fix up the doorway in your house you have to think of it from potential buyer’s perspective.

Get the front door and the surroundings sorted

There are many things that you can do to the front door of your home to give it the flair that you need to bring people in. The first thing that you want to check is to make sure that the door opens and closes without any issues. If the door starts squeaking or is very hard to open consider fixing that right away. There’s nothing worse when you’re trying to sell a home when the front door does not open. Consider getting an expert to install a new door if need be, right from our directory you can enquire about doors from Harvey’s or if your based outside of the Midlands consider finding a local company that specialises in doors.

The next thing you want to look at is to paint. If your door is wood you might think about sanding it down and to stain it. This will give your door a new look and make it look brand new when people come to look your home. If you need to add more paint to the existing exterior door then you’ll have to repaint the door. Paint is fairly inexpensive but make sure that you get the door trim and make sure that you paint everything around the door. The one thing that many people forget when they are repainting the door is that they do not do the outside trim. With fresh paint a dull paint will stand out like a sore thumb and this is bad when you’re trying to sell your home.

Make sure you lead the buyer into a nice environment


The other thing to consider when a buyer enters your home is the amount of light that is inside your home, light can make people feel cheery and put them more in a buying mood! Let as much light in as possible and if you feel it still looks a little dull you can always invest in one or two frameless wall mirrors, as these don’t have a full frame they maximise the amount of light that enters your home, they might be a bit retro so just ensure they will look right before buying. Another thing to consider is investing heavily in new interiors, if you add more value onto your home at the end you will benefit from it in the end and everyone knows that time is money so best strike whilst the iron is hot.

Overall all of these things will help greatly when it comes to finally getting your home sold. So start planning the entrace of your home and the impression you want to make today!
