How much thought have you given your front porch lately? Today’s episode might get you thinking more about how to amp up your porch appeal. We bet you have heard of curb appeal but porch appeal maybe even more important from a buyer’s perspective. Know the difference between porch appeal vs curb appeal!

In this video, Scott is playing the role of the agent and Lane is our potential buyer. Lane times how long it takes Scott to unlock the front door with his electronic key and during that time Lane points out the many observations a prospective buyer will note while they wait. The landscape is well maintained, the brick pavers are in good condition and the neighbor’s home across the street exhibits pride of ownership. After one minute and 5 seconds, Scott has unlocked the door and Lane notes that already he has formed an opinion about the house in that short time.
