Which Front Door Color Adds the Most $ to Your Selling Price?

Which front door color adds the most $ to selling price?  The impact of front door color on home selling price is not well established, and there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. However, certain colors have been shown to be more popular than others and may create a positive impression on potential buyers.

For example, a 2018 study by Zillow found that homes with black or charcoal gray front doors sold for $6,271 more than expected, while homes with shades of navy blue or dark gray sold for $1,514 more than expected. On the other hand, homes with front doors painted in shades of brown or beige sold for less than expected.

Ultimately, the color of your front door should complement the overall aesthetic of your home and appeal to your target buyers. It’s also important to ensure that your front door is well-maintained and in good condition, as this can have a significant impact on a potential buyer’s impression of your home.  A good curb appeal is important.  On average, it takes buyers 8 seconds to decide if they are attracted to your home or not.
