As we begin the traditionally “busy” home selling season many home sellers are doing their best to make a great first impression but often times sellers get so wrapped up in fresh interior paint or de-cluttering their home they forget about the first thing home buyers see – your front door!  There is your real first impression! 

The front door is an important place to focus your attention on for many reasons.  It allows you to
show off your taste and style before guests enter your home.  Plus, you deserve to come home to a welcoming front door!   Good news, helping your front door put its best foot forward is simple. 
Here are three easy steps:

The Door – first choose a door that reflects your style and personality – painting or staining it a contrasting color makes it a focal point.  Consider Red, black or stained finishes.  

If your door is in good shape and you are preparing to put your home on the market a fresh coat of paint or stain will give it that “new” look without the cost of a new door. 

The Accessories – just like any room in your home, the accessories are the finishing touch; you have several options: the door hardware, the house numbers, door knocker, doorbell, mailbox, doormats,
lighting and plants.  Since, typically, the area is small or compacted be sure to keep that in mind as you select your accessories.

A Commitment – keep the area neat and clean.  A simple sweeping or wiping down usually
does the trick.  But do it often – and pay attention to be sure you have removed webs, dust, finger prints or leaves.  Flower pots are a nice touch, keep the flowers looking fresh too. 

Last piece of advice, be sure that the entry way is clear of clutter, if they open the door can they get in too?  Many of us typically enter our homes through the garage so it can be easy to forget the front door and the front entry way.

As might be expected in a challenging economy in which large numbers of boomers are downsizing or buying second homes, the era of the McMansion has passed. Homebuyers have readjusted their priorities for how to design and use living space, with a focus on function over extravagance. A recent American Institute of Architects Home Design Trends Survey highlights the following shifts:


·        As more people work out of their home or telecommute, homeowners desire a dedicated workspace.

·        An expanded outdoor living area featuring furniture, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and so on increases functional living space.

·        Mud rooms offer an informal transition area between the outdoors and indoors and also provide additional storage.

·        Homebuyers continue to seek energy-saving features, including double- or triple-glazed windows and tankless water heaters.



Helping you find your home is our goal

I found this cute Halloween decorating idea and thought “how quick, easy and fun”!  

Create a Pumpkin Patch by first hard-boiling some eggs. Dye them orange using food coloring. Use a black permanent marker to draw jack-o-lantern faces on your eggs.

Or you can also decorate with your eggs. Use blown out and cleaned eggs, rather than hardboiled eggs. Make stands out of toilet paper cardboard rolls that have been cut shorter and painted green. This is cute displayed on a windowsill, surrounded by a little white picket fence made of white painted Popsicle sticks.


Don’t let all of the media reports about the real estate market SPOOK you - give us a call and we will guide you through the maze!
