LUXEMBOURG-VILLE — A local couple who for 10 years have been looking for a home to buy have not managed to find a seller, as evidenced by yet another round of handwritten notes slipped into mailboxes all across the country.
As reported in March, hundreds of thousands of copies of the note have been distributed over the years. As ever, the note reads: “Couple with child looking to buy a house or apartment in this area.”
The tone feels genuine and makes us want to help them. Who wouldn’t want to sell to this nice couple? A quick search of real estate listings shows hundreds of properties for sale, which leads us to wonder: are they using the right color of ink?
Once upon a time, experts claimed that blue signified trust and fidelity, the natural choice for someone who wants to say, “Hey, this isn’t a scam or some trick by a real estate company; we’re real people,” but maybe that’s no longer the case. Would red or even green be more effective? Should they change colors?
