Cathi: How many of you, like myself, drive into your garage/driveway at the end of the day, park your car and enter your home from a side (or back) door? Weeks or even months can go by without using the front door, and then when you least expect it, someone rings the door bell and you are faced with the ugly truth… a neglected, uninviting front entrance.
This is the gateway to your home! The condition, cleanliness, furnishings and decor of this area speak a lot about what might lie ahead. Your front entrance is the first introduction a guest (or potential buyer) has of your home, and it is important to make a good first impression.
