My home needs new outside steps

Hi, I’m trying to sell my home and need some help before I put it on the market. The previous owners put in a “circle driveway” but no steps to the front door. I put up a couple of cinder blocks and some walkway stones but women in heels find this a difficult walk. My real estate agent said I need to “fix this” before putting my home on the market. I’ve looked at Home Depot and Lowes and don’t see a solution there. The height from the top of the circle driveway to the ground is about 15-inches. Any ideas on what I can use as steps will be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums. You could opt for a single precast step. It would be solid and wide. No handrail necessary at hat height.

Even in my tiny town there are several people that sell precast steps. They are available in various heights and styles. Being concrete they are obviously heavy but a simple two step could be handled by two guys.

Thanks for the Suggestions!

Thanks for the suggestions. I see the Home Depot online and Walmart online are offering precast steps, so I will probably go with one of these. I appreciate the help.
