Buyers may take a look at the front of your home and decide at that moment whether or not to go inside. So make sure that your front steps, porch, siding and door are free of dirt, grime and debris.
Make sure your front door will open easily and not stick.
A fresh coat of paint really makes your door stand out. What color? Choose a color that is in harmony with your exterior and landscaping so everything feels tied together.
Make your buyers feel welcome with a fresh outside door mat.
Your mailbox, especially if it is on your porch, offers the opportunity to show off a bit of color.
Your house numbers should be large enough to be easily read and make a statement about your home.
Your door knocker and door knob should have the same finish.
Wall sconces and light fixtures atop lamp posts show off your home as well.
The main idea behind curb appeal is you want your buyers to absolutely fall in love with your house even before they step inside
