If you are looking for ways to boost your home value without having to spend a fortune on exterior renovations, consider adding a new front door for more curb appeal. This is one of the most valuable projects you can undertake in terms of ROI. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report 2023, you can recoup 100.9 percent of your investment by adding a steel entry door. A fiberglass grand entrance can command a 50 percent ROI.

Let’s take a look at the many ways in which new entry doors can boost your property value.

Choose a Door That Appeals to the Masses

If the main purpose of installing a new door is because you plan to sell your home in the near future, you will want to choose a style that appeals to a wide variety of tastes. In general, you’ll want to stick with safe colors and neutrals, and stay away from trendy, bold colors that may turn off some buyers. Also, choose a door that complements your home’s architectural style, such as a smooth sleek door for modern homes and a wood grain for a traditional Colonial.

Attract Smart Buyers

A new door adds curb appeal, and when you install a quality front door, this can propel you ahead of the competition. Smart buyers take time to assess the condition of a home and take note of what they may have to fix or replace once taking ownership. Knowing the door is brand new will put their mind at ease and may even translate to a higher offer. A new entry door gives you a unique selling point that other homes in the area may not have.

Choose a Quality Door

You may assume you can get away with a cheap front door if you know you’ll be selling soon. However, don’t make the mistake of underspending. If you go with the least expensive door on the market, you’re not going to get the most bang for your buck. It may even turn off savvy buyers who place an emphasis on quality. A drafty, tacky or flimsy door won’t do much to increase your home’s value.

The best value for entryways is usually fiberglass doors, which offers both beauty and the promise of low maintenance. Fiberglass can also mimic the classic look of wood grain, as well as capture the benefits of insulation, soundproofing, and security.

Add a Pop of Color

If you’re not planning on selling anytime soon, you have a bit more freedom with the style and color of your new door. In fact, it’s a great opportunity to try out a new style and color if you’ve always had a ho-hum entryway.

The most popular front door color choices are:

  • Black: This color offers the best resale value due to its versatility, as it can be used to provide a modern, sleek look or give a more traditional touch.
  • White: This is another versatile shade that pairs well with both classic or contemporary facades.
  • Navy blue: Add a bit of color without going too safe with black.
  • Yellow: This cheerful color will surely attract attention.
  • Red: This eye-catching colors adds a traditional element to your home, or you could go with a burgundy color if you don’t like the brightness of a true red.
  • Neutral wood tone: You will still get a warm and inviting look that complements other features of your exteriors.
