Many of us rarely use our front door, so we don’t see it.  Buyers do, and it better look good and open!  I tried to show a house recently, and couldn’t get in!  The door wouldn’t open, so the buyers didn’t even get to see the house.

Make sure the hardware works and looks good!  I actually helped people buy a house we nicknamed the “great front door house”, because the door and hardware were absolutely stunning!  The door fit perfectly, looked great, and felt very high quality; it set the stage for the rest of the house.

Don’t underestimate the importance of buyers coming through your front door!
