A lot of people visit our website because they are interested in building a new home. They look through our collection of house plans, and they find a home plan that they like, but they aren't ready to take the next step. Why? Because they are waiting for their home to sell.


You can't blame a person for waiting. Building a new house is a huge investment, and in some cases, it is very unwise for a family to try building a new home while still making payments on their current residence. Something has to give.


There are plenty of good resources and references out there that can help you sell your home faster, but I'd like to bring up something that you might not have thought of: door hardware.


Everyone knows that every dollar you spend improving your home will pay high dividends when the home actually sells -- but most people envision huge remodeling projects. You might be surprised to find out that this isn't always necessary; you don't need to totally remodel the kitchen -- all you need is a fresh coat of paint, a new refrigerator, and some shiny new door hardware.


Most people know from experience just how much of a difference a new coat of paint can make; you should also know that new energy-efficient appliances are selling like hot-cakes; but door hardware? Seriously? You'd be surprised at how beneficial a new set of doorknobs can be.


When a potential buyer is walking through your house, what is the first thing they come in contact with? The doorknob. He or she may not think about it, but a quality doorknob or lever with a smooth range of movement says a lot about the quality of a home. Now, it's true that most homebuyers don't pay much attention to the door hardware directly, but there are a lot of factors that go into the "overall feel" of a home -- and the door hardware is certainly one of those determining factors.


So if you're looking for a good place to find door hardware to update your house, you should check out Direct Door Hardware. They're great to work with, and you won't find better prices anywhere!
