Your house is for sale and Halloween is around the corner. Should you pull out the ghouls and goblins or opt for a less festive look? Here are three tips to help you decide.

Keep It Simple

Less is more when selling a home. Clutter and knick-knacks can be a distraction for buyers. If you want to add a bit of Halloween flair to your home, make sure you keep it simple. Don’t fill every nook and cranny with webs, witches and werewolves. You still want your home to look inviting.

Keep It Kid-Appropriate

Even if your buyers don’t have children, aim for G-rated decorations just in case. We want buyers to feel at home while touring your house, not fearful to turn a corner. Intense Halloween decorations that include blood and gore can be a real buzz-kill.

Think Harvest Décor

Instead of vampire blood and black widows, lean more towards celebrating Fall. Pumpkins, cornstalks and colored leaves can add a beautiful bit of color to your home and avoid scaring the pants off your potential buyers.
