A Closer Look at The Doors of Rockport Massachusetts

Rockport Is Adorable 

The front door is the entryway into the home and is the first impression that is conveyed to both visitors and passersby. And, as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

How much of an impact does the front door have on people? Well, Zillow reports that just by upgrading the paint job on your front door you can add thousands of dollars to your sale price! 

But beyond, and perhaps more importantly than, resale value doors provide an opportunity for expression and creativity. They are a reflection of the local vibe, history, and regional and personal idiosyncrasies.
