Selling your home during a holiday season can be "tricky" but with the right planning, great results can occur for everyone involved.  Selling your home during Halloween can be fun and if you plan ahead, you might get some extra marketing as well.  

 

When decorating your home for Halloween, keep in mind that visitors and others might take short cuts through your yard.  Decorate for Halloween so as not to cause tripping hazards.  Secure electrical cords and make sure no sharp edges of any decorations are near sidewalks or entries to your home.  And make sure that extension cords don't have any cuts or tears in the cords to avoid possible electrical sparks.

 

Decorating for Halloween should be tasteful, not overdone.  If there are too many distracting decorations, a potential buyer might look past your home.  For ideas, check out Houzz.com. 

 

If you have steps to your front porch, use reflective tape on the steps or bright yellow tape to avoid any tripping hazards.  

 

Plan an open house and invite the neighbors before Halloween.  You'll accomplish cleaning, food, and decorating ahead of time and you'll be ready for trick or treaters visiting you on Halloween night. 

 

Open houses are a great way to attract visitors and neighbors might know of someone interested in the neighborhood.  If someone is interested, refer them to your realtor for discussions and dialogue. 

 

Make sure to have fliers ready before your open house and on Halloween night.  The extra visitors may take all of your fliers during Halloween festivities so have extras on hand to refil your box. 

 

And the biggest tip - don't run out of candy!  Selling your home during Halloween doesn't have to be "frightful."  Being prepared takes all of the "scary" out of sellling your home during Halloween!
