Yesterday, I went to stage a house and was surprised to find that the front door handle was completely encapsulated in spider webs! Now this is not a good thing to find if you are a potential buyer and want to view your new home! I think, that often, people enter their homes through the garage and only see the front door when they open it for the package that UPS just delivered.
The front door is the focal point of your home... at least it should be. Look at it this way, the front door is to the home as a smile is to the face! So, go check out the front porch, stoop, landing... and clean out all the "spinach!" It should make everyone feel welcome and give you that "aaahhh" feeling when you enter your home.
