Investing in first impression is very important. A freshly painted and well maintained front door sets the tone for the rest of the home. A popular, fresh accent color with a well-appointed lock set/hardware speaks volumes to the perspective buyer. There is nothing worse than walking up to a house with a deteriorated, dirty front door with a lock set that is hard to open. Invest in a quality front door that sparkles when opened and make sure sidelights are clean and allow for maximum light.
