#3 Fun Real Estate Facts - The Red Door

Posted by Bend Premier Real Estate on Thursday, April 7th, 2016 at 7:29am.

Red doors in BendWhen you drive around Bend, have you noticed there are a lot of red front doors? Although for these homeowners the reasons might be aesthetic, around the world red doors actually have a lot of meaning. The Chinese, for example, believe red is a lucky color and would paint their doors red before the Chinese New Year. Red doors can be an important element of Feng Sui by allowing “chi” to be drawn into the home. Catholics often paint their church doors red to remind people of Christ's sacrifice. During slavery, red doors were used to by the Underground Railroad to show this particular home could provide safe haven. There is even rumor that people would paint their doors red as a sort of “no solicitation” sign to that annoying Fuller Brush salesman… but again, that’s just rumor. But the story we like most is that homeowners in Scotland paint their doors red to show that they have paid off their mortgage. Will you be painting your door red soon?

I think it's a good idea to choose a real estate agent that has experience selling homes in your potential new neighborhood.
