Showing Your Home During the Halloween Season Can Be Awesome!


Although warmer seasons are typically the busiest in real estate, there are many benefits to list your home during fall – and especially the Halloween season! It’s true that individuals purchase homes year-round, so don’t become discouraged! Instead, we can develop a strategy that will make your home stand out to prospective buyers. Once you have decided to sell your home, let’s take the time and emphasize its seasonal amenities.

First, keep your lawn in shape. Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that you should neglect your lawn. Patch up any brown spots in the grass and keep falling leaves under control with frequent raking. Second, improve your garden for the colder months. As your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant flowers like mums or other colorful plants. Next, incorporate tasteful fall decorations, such as pumpkins or tri-colored corn, adding to your home’s curb appeal. Inside, select charming decorations that are not overbearing. Try an inexpensive window treatment or add a splash of color with new place settings and dinnerware. Fresh decor will make your home seem current and well-maintained. A fall scented candle is the perfect accent to create a cozy, inviting space.

Lastly, keep exterior photos of your home up to date. Show pictures of your home in fall and summer to highlight all your home’s features. This will give prospective buyers something to look forward to in the upcoming seasons! For showings or open houses, offer marketing materials that get noticed. Print cards with your home information and attach a few treats for the kids. Selling your home will be easier than you think, and you will achieve your desired results since serious buyers often purchase in the off-season!
