We all know there are better neighborhoods than others to go Trick-or-Treating. Whether you live in a good neighborhood or travel to one, everyone has a memory of that one special house that made Halloween a little bit (or a lot) extra. Don’t be a dud! Here are a few simple tips to make sure you’re the coolest house on the block!


BUY A FOG MACHINE. If you’re willing to spend about $50 on a fog machine, you’ll win so many Halloween points from the kids on your block. You could get this fog machine with lights from Amazon delivered in just a few days. Set up your machine in the inside entryway of your home and let the fog rush out to greet your young visitors when you open the door. Keeping the machine inside (and safely away from curious little hands) creates a super spooky effect that will definitely make an impression.


Spring for the good candy! “Healthy” candy may win you points with crunchy Moms but Halloween isn’t their day. When in doubt, go Wonka! The brand makes a variety of fun candies no kid will sneak to the dog.


Dress as something most kids will recognize. Save the clever costumes for adult parties and gussie up as a recognizable character and you’ll be popular for sure!


Get your pets in on the fun. If you’ve got a friendly dog, there’s no need to leave them out of the festivities. Pet costumes are fairly inexpensive and a hilarious way to get the whole family into the holiday spirit.


If wandering around your neighborhood hoarding miniature candies happens to get you inspired to move, give me a call! This summer, my team and I helped 8 families find their home in the Central Valley. That’s a whole lot of moving and shaking! My clients are THE BEST!
