If you are selling your home this Halloween season, you can capitalize on increased holiday traffic in your neighborhood to attract potential buyers. It’s also an excellent opportunity to talk to your neighbors about friends they may have who are interested in moving into your neighborhood.
Be generous with the candy and market with the tips below:
- Treats & Info – Children love the treats that Halloween brings. Be prepared to hand out candy, as well as water bottles or adult beverages to parents. Be sure to have upcoming open house information and fliers about the house at the curb and near the door.
- Be ready to show visitors your house – Invite interested folks into your home to look around. Have some kid-friendly activities on hand to keep trick-or-treaters busy while parents explore your home. They may not stay long, but may have time to ask some questions and get a quick overview.
- Be conservative with décor – Don’t go overboard when it comes to Halloween decorations. A few festive touches are fine, but leave the inflatables and over-the-top décor for another time. Some great ideas are mums and pumpkins on the porch and a Halloween wreath.
