Which change to the street face of your home can dramatically up its value while expressing your delight as a homeowner?

Make a statement with a new front entry door.

Take advantage of developments in materials and technology to redesign or restate your main entry and you can benefit on many levels: add value, decrease energy costs, increase security, make a unique creative statement, and more…

Increase buyer traffic to increase the potential for a sale. When you’re preparing your home for sale, your real estate professional may offer cost-effective advice on which specific front entry style attracts the buyers you’re targeting.

Buyers who realize that listings with a no-statement front entry may be overlooked by other purchasers can gain an edge in even competitive markets.

If selling is not an immediate concern, set a practical budget compatible with expected value appreciation. A few quotations may help pin down what makes financial sense.

Once you’ve decided on new door specifics, attend a home or design show where door sellers offer special show prices and you may save hundreds or even thousands.

Take time to explore all your options before you dive in. For practical statement ideas, check out new homes and slightly more up-scale areas than yours if “door make-overs” have not hit your neighborhood yet. Decide which features of your home to accentuate and which entry style—traditional, classic, modern—best compliments your home’s style.
