So what’s so great about a new door? Well there are material benefits, of course. A new door on your home means it’s more secure and that the door can be expected to last a good long while, which is of course a nice selling point for any potential buyer. But there’s also a lot to be said for the sheer visual appeal.
First impressions mean a lot, both in meeting folks or checking out a new place for the first time. That means when a buyer rolls up their eyes are drawn to what’s immediately visible. That means windows, roof, siding, and of course, the front door. If yours is a new, gorgeous fiberglass or traditional wood door, you’re making a great first impression.
Any investment will always come down to the return, of course. And doubly so when you’re looking to sell a home. That means you’re looking for a good return on investment, or the amount you can expect the new feature to add to your home value versus the cost of getting the feature in question.
So where do entry doors sit on the return on investment scale? High. They sit very high! You can generally anticipate greater than 90% return on investment for a new high quality door. Especially in the case of secure steel or energy-efficient doors that add attractive bonuses that new modern homeowners and potential homeowners love. This makes them a more efficient pick than most options, actually, including the steadfast popular choices like kitchen and bathroom remodels.
If you’re picking and choosing the ideal thing sot change, replace, or alter in your home, the team at APCO would say start with the basics! A new kitchen is awesome, sure, but it doesn’t mean much if the roof is falling in, or the windows in your home are 50 years old. Look after the basics, since they’re some of the highest ROI options out there and will always please buyers.
