Home Selling Tips – Why You Need a Realtor®

There are quite a few reasons why you should use a local Realtor® to sell your home. Selling your home is a bit tougher than buying a home, especially in today’s real estate market since there have been so many changes. Pricing, marketing, and a real estate professional are all very important to get your home sold. Therefore, it’s even more important to use a local Realtor® in your area to help you price and prepare your home for a sale.

Reason’s to use a local Realtor®:

Local agents are more likely to have insider marketing knowledge. An agent from another area will probably have to guess at many crucial marketing techniques for your area. The lack of insider knowledge can actually prevent an out-of-area agent from getting your home maximum exposure.

Local agents have more in-area contacts than outsiders do. A local agent will have more opportunities to market your property in casual settings and through other local agents. Therefore, a local agent will have a stronger marketing channel to market your property through.

Local agents have the upper-hand on pricing in your area. One of the strongest reasons for working with a local agent is for their knowledge of what local buyers want and don’t want. They will understand local pricing better since they have probably sold many homes in your area.

“THRILLER” at Tuacahn amphitheatre near St George Utah is quickly becoming a Halloween tradition for many southern Utah residents and visitors alike. It’s a great way to usher in the Halloween season and get in the mood for ghosts and ghouls!

Tips to Create Your Own Haunted House

Recently, I came across some tips to help make your house haunted this Halloween season and thought I would share what I found. These easy to do tips will have your family and friends feeling downright haunted when they visit your home. It’s a great way to make your Halloween a spooky one to remember.

Haunted House Décor Tips

Sinister Vibe – Spray paint everything you can black. You can start out with cheap vases and flowers. Spray paint them black and set them around your home. You can also spray paint candles and candle holders black. No matter what you paint it will look sinister, just make sure you don’t mind it staying black.

Totally Creepy – Throw white sheets over all your furniture so it looks like your home has been vacant for yours. This will totally creep out your family and friends when they come to visit.

Shadow Effect – Fill your home with lots of tall, skinny candles and keep your lights turned off. You can use old bottles painted black to hold them all. This will create a spooky show effect.

Hair Raising – All you need to have your home feeling hair-raising creepy is a few statue busts or old dolls. Many people think there is nothing more hair-raising than busts and old dolls.

Dead Look – You may actually like the dead look of dead branches lying around your tables and in your vases. This is a look that can be very chic and spooky at the same time.

Aged Look – Get dried Spanish moss and toss it around on your furniture to make it look like no one has used that couch or chair in years. You can buy bags of Spanish moss at any craft store.

Antique Feel – Gather black and white photos of the oldest you can find and put them in vintage style frames. If you create a gallery on your wall, it will give your home a haunted antique feel.

Webs – Just buy a few packs of spider webs from any store that sells Halloween items and put them in every corner of your home.

No matter how you decorate your home for Halloween just keep-in-mind that to make it haunted and creepy looking you need black décor, old décor, dolls, spiders, webs, and candles.
