How to Increase the Value of Your Home with ONE Simple Step
Welcoming someone into your home gives you one big opportunity to make a good first impression, which means pulling out all the stops is a necessity. So when it comes to the home, the front door stands tall and the clear front-runner for the first impression.
Whether this comes in the form of the interior or exterior (or both!), you know we’re always up for a refreshing change.
I was SO excited when we checked off one of our house goals that was on our list since we first walked through the front door of our new home… Just a simple update like a front door can completely change up the look of your home and add value, but did you know that ONE change can add a value of over $6000?!
Another site referred to the new analysis by real estate website Zillow as taking advice from the Rolling Stones to paint it black. When it comes down to it, a black front door (or shades of black or charcoal) tend to raise a home’s value by $6271.
Pretty cool right?
You guys, this study came out after we updated our entryway with a black front door, and to be completely honest… I was hesitant to go black, but now I’m even more excited that we did!
I knew that the front door needed to be updated, and living in Florida (and especially since we were replacing it after Hurricane Irma blew through), we decided to let the pro’s do it with an energy-efficient, weather-proofed option. The Therma-Tru Benchmark fiberglass doesn’t warp or split, and it resists shrinking and swelling with temperature changes, so I feel safe inside.
And now? I’m also pretty proud of the color.
Kerrie Kelly, a design expert for Zillow, was quoted, “While cool, neutral wall colors like tan and light blue are still popular, we’re seeing a notable shift in home design where pops of color — particularly in darker hues of blue and gray to even black — are becoming increasingly popular.”
So, if you’re ready for an update, or want to add some valuable curb appeal, why not try a black front door!
