You may have exerted all the best efforts you can but still your house spends half a year in the market. People who may seem to notice it stop at the mere point of just browsing pictures that you posted. Calls are scarce and so as emails. With Halloween coming in just a few days, grab the opportunity to cast that wonderful spell to potential clients. Here are some tips to take.
- Improve curb appeal. Your house should be noticeable from a few meters from the streets. Ensure that it is still a head turner that even passersby will admire what they see. The lawn, the garden and the home itself should be as inviting as they can be. Remember that Halloween is a time when many families and groups of people are out to that trickin’ and treatin’.
- Host a Halloween Party cum open house. Why not fuse the event with the goal of marketing your house. Hosting a party on that spooky night will allow many persons to see your house and its features. The occasion is perfect to entice parents and kids. Don’t forget to put a yard signage that Trick or Treat is going on. Oh, and don’t forget to prep up on your sweets and candies as kids will be your primary guests.
- Stage the house with little touches of the occasion. Home staging is a tricky process. You always have to learn to separate yourself to that space which has become your dwelling for long period. Treat your potential buyers by allowing them to feel as if the house is already theirs. And while staging is set to the usual standards of minimal decoration, it is still quite good to add some Halloween spirit in some areas of the house. After all, it is the party that you actually capitalized to entice people to visit your house.
Putting up an open house during a time when most people are on their scary or fantasy-inspired outfits may be unusual for some. But while most sellers may be attending parties hosted by others, grab the advantage of hosting a Halloween event yourself to invite potential buyers and to possibly convert them into persistent persons who would give you calls or send you emails indicating their interest on the house you are selling.
