Boosting the Value of your Home? Start with New Doors, Jacksonville!
September 21, 2010
With a rough housing economy, homeowners everywhere are looking for ways to raise the value of their homes, and many are doing just that by replacing their front doors. Jacksonville’s top Realtors will tell you that first impressions have a huge impact when prospective buyers get a first glimpse at your home. In fact, a national study by TNS, an independent provider of Internet-based research and research-based marketing information and counsel, concluded that an attractive front entrance can boost a home’s curb appeal and increase its perceived market value by an average 6.6 percent.
The study concludes that the boost in a home’s perceived value can equal as much as five times the cost of the doors themselves. By comparison, a survey in Remodeling magazine found that most home improvements yield less than 90 cents on the dollar in terms of the home’s market value. And, those popular improvements often cost much more than a new front door.
