When selling houses is your job, you tend to pay attention to what people in the neighborhood are doing to their homes. One thing we’ve been noticing lately is that people are using pops of color on their front doors, after years of only seeing dark red, hunter green, black and brown we’re starting to see yellow, orange and robin blue. If you like this and think you’re ready to take the leap, check out this article, the pictures alone are worth the click and they just may inspire you. http://bit.ly/1inrNjI
If you’re selling your home REALTORS® and professional stagers will tell you to clean your windows. Clean windows let more light in, clean windows feel more inviting, clean windows will make that fresh coat of paint we just asked you to do look even better. So why have we personally avoided this task for 4 years? Well in our defense we live in an older home and all our window are french pane windows, gorgeous yes, but difficult to clean, too many opportunities for streaks, overwhelming and well just like most home owners we tend to put of these types of tasks. So after years of saying, we should do this, why haven’t we done this, and then in desperation giving it a shot on our own, we pulled the trigger and called the guy. They’re here today and I swear I will never put this task off again, I’m calling every Spring. Clean windows really do let more let in, it looks brighter and cleaner in here and that makes us happy, isn’t that what it’s all about.
The Matt Engen Group
Our team picture turned out great and we’re excited, it’s been fun to come together as a team. We’ve been able to learn so much by sharing our experiences and problem solving together and we’re looking forward to sharing that combined knowledge and expertise with you. Because when you work with a team you get the experience and expertise of more than one real estate brain, with our team you get four!
The Matt Engen Group is growing and with that comes the need for new team pictures. And although not a single member of the team was excited about this, we all knew that professional pictures were necessary. Professional pictures of the homes we list are an important part of our brand, as REALTORS®, we know that buyers begin their home search online and that these pictures can make the difference between the buyer scheduling a showing and never knowing they were interested. So we called on Julia Auerbach, a friend, neighbor and professional photographer to help us out. We just finished up an almost 2 hour session. It was fun, maybe a little painful but we know the end product will be worth it.
