Not only is it the first thing you see when you come home but don’t forget it’s the first thing your buyers see. The front of your house is your introduction and sets the tone for showings and impressions of your home. Here are some easy updates to vamp up your curb appeal.

It sounds so simple but many sellers don’t spend the small investment to add this friendly touch. I’m partial to the large double pots flanking a door to add symmetry and interest without too much distraction. If it is the winter months consider a lovely evergreen and holly arrangement. Most local florist are thrilled to put these together for you.

Colored doors are instyle right now. If you are looking for a great ‘pop’ to set your house apart, yellow looks wonderful particularly with grey, blue, or white siding. Red is also a nice standard traditional look and if those are too bold for you then just a freshen up of your current color makes a big impact!
