Success Stories
“In the summer of 2017, Tara and I decided to look for a cabin in Northern WI.  After talking with several realtors, we found Matt Albrecht with Woodland Realty.  I was comfortable with Matt from the start.  Matt listened to what we wanted, understood our financial range and didn't try to push us towards properties out of our price range.  Matt was straight forward, honest and respectful of our requests.  Since we live 4hrs away, Matt made time on weekends to show us properties.  In September we found our dream property on Nelson lake and Matt was there to help us through all the steps.    I would highly recommend using Matt and Woodland to help you find your new home/cabin or sell your property. They did a fantastic job.   Respectfully,   Brian & Tara Korfmacher Cottage Grove WI.”

Is What's Outside As Important As The Inside?

Posted: June 28, 2017

When it comes to buying a house, most people focus first on what's going on inside the house. The size of the kitchen, the number of bedrooms, closets, storage, etc., are all top concerns. But, according to a recent survey from the National Association of Realtors, access to outdoor recreation is nearly as important to most home buyers.

Respondents listed benefits such as better health, an appreciation of nature, and a greater sense of community among the reasons they believed it was important to be close to outdoor features. And it wasn't a small number, either. There were large majorities that said outdoor recreation was either very or somewhat important to them. In fact, 56 percent of participants said it was very important and an additional 30 percent said it was somewhat important.

Not surprisingly, there was a slight difference depending on where respondents lived. For example, in the West, 65 percent of those surveyed said outdoor recreation was very important to them, while just 51 percent felt the same way in the Midwest. Still, it's clearly something to think about when searching for a home to buy – whether you're buying a home by the water or just looking for something close to a neighborhood park.
