Fixing Front Entrance, First Money-Wise Renovation for Good Return on Your Investment
I'm sure you heard the saying: You never get a second chance to make a first impression... It holds true when it comes to the front entrance of your home. We always want to impress the visitors with a welcoming setting, when your home is listed for sale, this is the first item that you need to take care of.
Before the showings start, which may take couple of days, your home is already judged by the people walking or driving by. They are constantly on the lookout for that one, perfect property that is just right for them. Why not intrigue them with a tasteful splash of color, visible right from the street?
Those serious house hunters will notice and remember that pumpkin colored door with sparkling clean glass and polished brass handle, coordinating so well with the subtle tones in your bricks. And those black, sophisticated urns filled with the arrangement of warm fall colors. So much better and memorable than that gray blue paint peeling off the neighbor's front door.
That part of getting your home ready for sale is quite easy no matter what season and what weather we have to face: Fixing Front Entrance
For instant splash of color in Spring, consider planting spring bulbs that are in bloom already. You can find those in any supermarket, grocery store, garden center and even convenience stores.
In Summer you have it made! There is an incredible array of planting material available from the stores mentioned above as well as your neighbors, family and friends.
Come Fall the Harvest display can be utilized to your advantage. Keep it tasteful and classy, no scare crows and skip the Halloween stuff altogether, even if it is your kids favorite holiday. Not everyone is "into it", so remember that you are after those precious first impressions, above all.
Ahhh... Winter what do I do? I have no stuff to plant! Easy! Remember those planters that you used all year round? Well if they are clay... put them away fast, if you have the resin ones or cast iron, fill them with sand, than arrange evergreen branches and red colored twigs of the dogwood trees in an attractive way. Keep in mind that even if your front doors need a fresh coat of paint, they should not be painted until the outside temperature is right.
If you keep it simple fixing front entrance will not be as difficult as you may think.
