What Houzz contributors are saying:

Boost Curb AppealAdd a porch. "This is one of the least expensive additions to a home, which gives the absolute maximum curb appeal for the dollar," says James Crisp of Crisp Architects in Millbrook, New York. Many potential buyers will make up their mind about about whether to attend your open house based on the impression they get the first time they drive by — and an attractive front porch can be a wonderful way to lure people in.Pay attention to details. Iris Harrell, CEO of Harrell Remodeling, adds, "A clean and welcoming appearance at the front entry is critical. Add a new exterior light fixture, new front door or front door color, and new door hardware with a lock that works properly. If the front door has a sidelight of glass that is a bubble glass from the 1960s, change it to clear tempered glass. Bring in as much natural light as you can."
