Halloween Is A Scary Event, Take Every Chance, Lose Every Fear

Halloween originated as a celebration connected with evil spirits. Witches flying on broomsticks with black cats, ghosts, goblins and skeletons have all evolved as symbols of Halloween. They are popular trick-or-treat costumes and decorations for greeting cards and windows.

Black is one of the traditional Halloween colors, probably because Halloween festivals and traditions took place at night. In the weeks before October 31, Americans decorate windows of houses and schools with silhouettes of witches and black cats. Pumpkins are also a symbol of Halloween.

The pumpkin is an orange-colored squash, and orange has become the other traditional Halloween color. Carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns is a Halloween custom also dating back to Ireland. A legend grew up about a man named Jack who was so stingy that he was not allowed into heaven when he died, because he was a miser. He couldn't enter hell either because he had played jokes on the devil.

As a result, Jack had to walk the earth with his lantern until Judgment Day. The Irish people carved scary faces out of turnips, beets or potatoes representing "Jack of the Lantern," or jack-o'-lantern. When the Irish brought their customs to the United States, they carved faces on pumpkins because in the autumn they were more plentiful than turnips. Today jack-o'-lanterns in the windows of a house on Halloween night let costumed children know that there are goodies waiting if they knock and say "Trick or Treat!"

BUT THE HOUSING MARKET DOESN’T NEED TO BE SCARY  

Here are the steps of the home buying process for all you witches and ghouls out there!

Step 1: Are you ready?                                                                                                        

Think about what criteria you are looking for in a home.  Are you ready financially?

Step 2: Choosing a Realtor

Realtors are trained to have knowledge on the housing market and are there to have your best interest in mind. People who have realtors find that they have less stress which makes it easier for them to enjoy the process of purchasing a home.

Step 3: Get Loan Pre-Approval

Find a lender that you trust.  Lenders are able to give you financial advice and help you choose a loan that is the best fit for you.

Step 4: Looking at Homes

Realtors have access to the MLS which shows every house that is available on the market.  With your realtors help, you can see which homes are available on the market and also have access to viewing homes in person.  

Step 5: Choosing a Home

When finding the perfect home for you make sure that it meets all of your criteria, is in a price range you are comfortable with, and has that "home sweet home" feeling.  If you have all of these factors, chances are that you have found the right home for you!

Step 6: Making an Offer

Realtors can negotiate for you and also have your best interst in mind.  Realtors will try their best to get you the best deal for the house that you love!

Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!
