Curb appeal. It’s a phrase you will hear over and over again when you are trying to sell a house. From a friendly welcome sign, to traditional clay pots overflowing with colorful flowers, to a charming, old-fashioned porch swing — there are so many elements you can add to create a truly welcoming front porch.
Curb appeal is so important in fact, that in a recent Zillow survey, real estate agents named it one of the five most important factors in selling a home. And, homes with strong curb appeal fetch prices that are 10% higher on average.
Even if you aren’t selling your home, adding curb appeal is easy and will make you oh-so-happy every time your drive up to your own front door!
One of the easiest ways to spruce up your front door in by installing a classic doorbell. I personally love a doorbell and have always wanted one. But, to have it professionally wired and installed simply wasn’t high enough on our (very, very long) home improvement wish list.
But now, I have a wonderful doorbell. And best of all, I installed it myself!
No, I did not become a licensed electrician. This is a wireless doorbell from MLVOC and a simple option for any home. To install, just plug in the receiver. Peel the double-sided adhesive strip off of the bell. And, place the bell on the front porch. That’s it!
This wireless doorbell features 36 different chime variations, sounds through the entire house, and is a more civilized way to announce an arrival than pounding on the front door!
This wireless doorbell is available on Amazon Prime for just $11.95.
