Halloween Decorating Tips for Homes for Sale
Halloween is that magical time of year when children and adults dress up in costume and get candy. Here are some Halloween decorating tips for homes for sale during Halloween time.
We love Halloween and put decorations up all over the house and outside. We go for the Scary and borderline gory decorations. This may not be the best way to go if you are trying to sell your home.
Inside your home - Limit the amount of decorations in your home. Try using a "harvest" type of centerpiece on your dining table. One or two witches or ghosts is ok, but remember that the goal when selling your home is to de-clutter the house so don't go too crazy with the spooktacular decorations. You can add a Halloween feel by adding harvest tea towels to your oven door handle and a few faux pumpkins.
Outside your home - Stay away from the Scary decorations. Your homes curb appeal is very important. Your curb appeal is your homes first impression on buyers and you want to make a good one. Try using a bail of hay on the porch accented with a few pumpkins. If you have a flag pole you may want to hang a "cute" Halloween flag. Keep your decorations in a "harvest theme" and limit your decorations to 5-7 pieces.
Get the Kids involved in your downsized decorating. You can get a plain hay wreath at your favorite craft store. Go to your local dollar store and pick up a few fall floral picks. Grab a few small Halloween decorations like cute witches or ghosts that you can add to the wreath. Usually they will be floral picks or small handing decorations. Cut the leaves off the pics and remove the sticks and strings from the decorations. Then all you need to do is have the kids help you glue the leaves and decorations to the wreath. This will make the kids feel like they decorated the house even with the downsizing in decorations.
