Keep in mind that there are two first impressions, outside the home and inside. Outside is usually referred to as curb appeal. Beautiful, healthy plantings, a clean, attractive walkway, and a welcoming entry all set the stage for a buyer to see your home favorably. Sellers often overlook the front door and the area surrounding it. If the finish on the door, the door hardware, and the trim around the door are not in new condition, you have already told buyers that you are not taking care of the home.
