For most of our properties, the sellers are already aware that a having an attractive front garden and a tidy exterior can be deal breakers.

But have you ever thought about what the colour of your front door says about you and your home or what influence it may have on your viewers?

Here we have a look at some of the front door colours that we regularly come across in the properties we market in and around Staines and Ashford and what we think that says about the seller.
