Are you planning on selling a home in Orange County right now or in the coming months?
One of the most important tips that you can successfully apply to selling your home is purchasing a new front door for your home.
Why Does The Front Door Matter?
A front door matters because, having a solid front door, with a high quality set of locks, will “subconsciously” leave the impression in a potential homebuyers mind that your home is solid and there is nothing wrong with it.
Should You Replace An Older Front Door?
If you own a home that was built before 1960, chances are that your home has a quality front door and lockset; sadly, many homeowners have replaced older front doors and hardware over the years and this is a mistake because, an older front doors will add character to any home, especially if the front door was built back in a time before pre-fab doors. If your home was built after that time, consider buying a heavy door that will provide a sense of protection and has a nice “thunk” for home buyers.
Instead of replacing an older, well-built door, should consider taking the front door down, sanding it, repairing it and either re-staining or repainting it.
You can also rehabilitate locksets as well too so that they look as good as they did when they were first installed.
What Color Should You Paint Your Front Door?
The best color to paint a front door is a deep red because, any shade of red will make that front door “pop” and make it instantly noticeable from the street.
Other colors that can be used to give a front door a “pop” affect are yellow, blue and green or any color that matches the homes exterior colors and character (and are within the HOA’s guidlines).
