RESA Reports On Front Doors and Selling Your Home

The Real Estate Staging Association (RESA) has recently published a report on curb appeal enhancement by changing the over-all look of your front door when it is time to sell. A great piece of information with a lot of helpful tips on what colour works, trending colours, the right hardware and finishes, door painting tips, and more!  The survey also includes statistics and insights from local  stagers and redesigners.

The goal of this publication is to help you achieve great curb appeal for your home, to help you stand out in the competition, and make a great first impression to your potential buyers. This was completed with the help of professional stagers and redesigners all over North America.

Professional stagers agree that painting your front doors the same color as your house or trim will not do justice to the main entry of your home, which means your chances of making a great first impression is lost.

On the contrary, picking the right door colour, can make your home stand out in online photos making it more visually appealing than boring non-descript doors. It can set your home apart from competition and can increase interest from potential buyers to step in and see the rest of the house.
