8 “Wicked” Halloween Decorating Tips

Halloween is an exciting time of year for everyone to enjoy! Whether you’re young or old, getting dressed up for trick-or-treating and costume parties is always a blast, and there are endless fall activities for people of all ages. At Schaeffer Family Homes, our favorite way to get in the Halloween spirit is by decorating our homes with spooky spiderwebs, ghastly ghouls and all things haunted! Here’s everything you need to know for making your home the most “wicked” trick-or-treating stop on the block:

 

 

1. Fake Spider Webs Galore!

Halloween just wouldn’t be the same without spiderwebs! Head over to the nearest dollar store or craft shop and grab a bunch of fake cobwebs. Not only are fake cobwebs quick and easy-to-use, but they can be utilized in so many different places! Our favorite spots to place our cobwebs are throughout walkway bushes and along the plants and decorations that sit on our doorsteps.

 

 

2. Pick Your Palette

When decorating for fall and Halloween, we recommend sticking with a color scheme in each room to maintain a cohesive, yet festive feel. Choose a few colors that complement each other (for example: black, orange and white) and decorate within that color palette for each area. Mantels and fireplaces are a great space for fashioning a colorful Halloween-themed centerpiece at the heart of your home (along with a few cobwebs, perhaps?).

 

 

3. DIY or Buy Decorative Flower Pots

Mums are fall’s favorite flower, so swing by your local garden shop and stock up on this seasonal staple! Plant your mums in a decorative Halloween pot to liven up your front yard or doorstep. If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with the kids (or you’re just feeling extra festive), you can buy some plain flower pots or tins for your mums and paint them as ghosts, pumpkins, black cats and more!

 

 

4. Don’t Forget About Your Front Windows!

Window space is very important when it comes to decorating for all holidays. Adorn your windows with creepy carve-outs, funky orange lights or fake cobwebs to take your space from homey to haunted.

 

 

5. Yard Space is Key

Whether your yard is big or small, you should utilize its space! Use outdoor decorations and mysterious lighting to create spooky scenes. Maybe you’ll arrange a few witches around a smokey cauldron or display a headless horseman who’s ready to ride! Don’t be afraid to get creative and creepy with different ideas to make your home the most wicked on the block!

 

 

6. Bedeck Your Banister

We love decking out our banisters for the holidays! At the craft store, you can buy all sorts of garland, lights and string to wrap around your banister’s handrails. If you want to keep your banister decorated through Thanksgiving, you can easily adorn it with garland made of fake fall leaves that make a lasting impression. Or, if you’re interested in taking the wicked route, you can use black garland and orange lights for an eerie atmosphere that’s perfect for Halloween.

 

 

7. Fun with Front Doors

Front doors aren’t just for wreaths! You can “mummify” your front door with white strips of paper and large googly eyes, or even turn it into a furry monster with fuzzy faux fur and fake teeth! There are endless ways to make your entryway spicy and spooky with wrapping paper or colored painters tape and more. Front doors and patios also offer a great opportunity to create a theme for your haunted home (for example: “The Morgue,” “The Witches Coven,” “The Potions Cellar,” and more!)

 

 

8. Of course we couldn’t forget the PUMPKINS!

Real or fake, pumpkins are a necessity when it comes to Halloween. Festoon your doorstep with pumpkins galore! Whether you paint them, carve them, or leave them as-is, pumpkins are vital for getting in the Halloween spirit. Scatter pumpkins of all different shapes, sizes and colors in and around your home to complete your haunted house creation!

Whether you decide to use one, none or ALL of our decorating tips this Halloween, we know your Schaeffer Family Home will look as wicked as ever! Tag us in your decorating photos on Facebook or Instagram @SchaefferFamilyHomes and show us what you’ve got! From everyone at Schaeffer Family Homes, we hope you enjoy a thrilling, chilling and safe Halloween!

Featured Floorplan: The Newport

Featured Floorplan: The Newport

Choosing a floorplan that’s perfect for you and your family can be challenging, but when it comes to The Newport, it’s hard to go wrong! At Schaeffer Family Homes, The Newport is one of our most popular and versatile floorplans. This charming ranch-style home, which starts at 2,005 square-feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, offers unlimited possibilities when it comes to personalization.

When we work with our customers in the Design Center to customize their Newport, they can choose from three different exterior styles and various structural options, most of which are unique for a ranch-style home. Curious what we mean by “unique?” In The Newport’s “B” and “C” architectural designs, you can choose to finish the second floor and add options like the additional fourth and fifth bedroom. Although these additional second-floor rooms are traditionally used as bedrooms for kids or guests, many of our customers have fashioned them into at-home gyms, playrooms, “man-caves” or entertainment centers!

The Newport features a spacious master suite tucked away on the first floor with an incredible private bathroom and roomy walk-in closet. The great room, kitchen and dining rooms are designed with an open floorplan concept, which creates a flexible environment for hosting guests or spending quality time with the family.

At the heart of the kitchen is an angled center-island with a sink, perfect for your more “laid-back” meals or enjoying a cup of coffee before work. The large windows at the great room and dining room allow sunlight to radiate through the entire first floor, making for a naturally bright and welcoming atmosphere. At the front of the home are the second and third bedrooms, which many customers have utilized alternatively as a study or library. The included 2-car garage in The Newport provides enough room for your cars and storage, with an entrance that leads to the laundry and mud room.

Owning a Newport feels a lot like the movie “50 First Dates” – as each day passes, you fall in love all over again! And when you come home exhausted from work or running errands, there’s nothing that compares to pulling into your driveway and being greeted by your beautiful brand-new Schaeffer Home. (Trust us – we know from experience!)

No matter how you decide to design your Newport, we know that everyone who steps inside will feel right at home! Take the first step toward building your own Schaeffer Family Home – contact us at 856-208-5118 or e-mail general.info@schaefferhomes.com to learn more today!

Curb Appeal: Preparing Your Home To Sell

When it comes to selling your old home, there’s nothing like a first impression — which means your exterior should be in its been shape ever. When potential homeowners come to visit, it’s important they experience that “special feeling” from the get-go… a beautiful, clean, and depersonalized space can make the magic happen.

 

From your lawn to your flowers to your gutters, there are so many easy ways to make your outdoor space as appealing as your home’s interior. If you’re unsure where to start, don’t worry! When you work with Schaeffer Family Homes, we’re right behind you to ensure that you stage your home effectively, and feel confident and secure with every decision.

 

Are you ready to beautify your old home’s exterior so you can settle into your new Schaeffer home? We’re ready too! Take a look at a few of our favorite tips to enhance your curb appeal, win homeowners over, and sell your old home faster than ever:

Lawn: This may go without saying, but caring for your lawn should be one of your biggest (and first) priorities. From mowing the grass to raking leaves to pulling weeds, “grooming” this part of your yard ensures a clean, dignified aura that potential homeowners can feel immediately. The grass is greenest in your own front yard!

 

Real Estate Signage: There’s almost nothing more noticeable than that “For Sale” sign in your front yard. Of course, potential homeowners are going to see this sign and make instinctive judgments about how both you and your realtor view your home, so make sure the sign is appealing, clean, and represents you well!

 

Flowers: What says springtime better than vibrant, colorful flowers? Adding pops of color to your exterior, whether on your porch, on the sides of your walkway, or around your mailbox, creates a sense of warmth and liveliness. In the spring, flowers like yellow daffodils, pink peonies, and white tulips bloom beautifully.

 

Driveway: After years of use, your driveway naturally loses its original spark… The good news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get it into tip-top shape — pressure washing your driveway will make it look as good as new without breaking your wallet. When homeowners walk up to your home, they’ll get squeaky clean vibes!

Mailbox: Your mailbox may be one of your favorite staples, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t use a little work. Touch up the post with a fresh coat of paint (you could even repaint your front door with a matching color). All in all, make sure that it looks clean and fresh, and if it’s too worn down, there’s no harm in getting rid of it.

 

Roof and Gutters: As much as it may feel like a chore, cleaning your roof and gutters will make a world of difference to someone who’s seeing your home for the first time. This means clearing out any branches and debris, reattaching loose gutters, and even replacing the roof if it’s completely necessary.

 

Photography: Today, about 88 percent of homebuyers start their process online, which means aesthetically pleasing photography puts you at an advantage. Once you’

ve spruced up your outdoor space, enlist the help of a skilled photographer to snap some “glamour shots” that will entice homeowners to come see the real thing!

 

At Schaeffer Family Homes, our team ensures that your road to move-in day is just as smooth and enjoyable as you deserve. When you stage your home the right way, potential homeowners will be able to envision making it their own — which puts you one step further to settling into your brand new Schaeffer home!

It’s not too early to start prepping for Thanksgiving!

You look forward to Thanksgiving each November. Whoever hosts always seems to pull it off
without a hitch. Now, you are all settled in your brand new Schaeffer home, and you’ve volunteered
to host this year. And the magnitude of the task has hit you. Don’t sweat it. You can do it – and make
it look effortless – thanks to your state-of-the-art kitchen and party-friendly open floor plan!
Invite early. The key to a stress-free Thanksgiving is to plan early. Once you commit to hosting, the
first thing you need to do is invite every single person you want to come. Even the last minute types
are likely to make Thanksgiving plans early in November, so start putting feelers out there ASAP. In
the meantime, start thinking about where you’re going to put everybody. (Flexible, open floorplans
make this part soooo much easier!)

Be organized. Planning and organizing is imperative. It’s the only way to make sure you don’t find
yourself with missing ingredients, a house that’s a mess, and hours of cooking still to be done when
your guests arrive. Start by making lists of everything you need to do, a schedule for the weeks
leading up to dinner, and shopping lists before you head to the store for ingredients and supplies.
Bonus! Lists let you see everything you need, and let you check things off. (Checking things off is a
really good feeling!)

Plan your menu. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and you need a game plan. The first
step? Figure out what’s on the menu. Chances are your guests will want to bring things… you just
have to tell them what you need. Once you have the menu set, start shopping for non-perishables
(e.g. baking ingredients, bread cubes, herbs & spices), and make a corner of your pantry
“Thanksgiving Central”. Having everything in one place will help you keep track.
Cook in advance. Don’t stress out by trying to cook everything on Thanksgiving Day. Create a
timeline, and figure out what can be made ahead of time. Casseroles can be premade. Vegetables
can be chopped and ready to steam. Some things can’t be cooked early, like the turkey, but almost
everything else in the meal can be prepped and ready to just pop on the stove top or into the oven.
Let’s put that brand new kitchen to work!

Set up in advance. Establish your dining space (formal dining room, flex space, even the family room). Figure out if you’re having a sit-down meal or a buffet-style repast. Then, as long as you don’t have to worry about pets or small children upsetting things, set everything up days before the event. That way you won’t be scrambling to find the serving dishes that are somewhere in the basement; cleaning the dust off the extra wine glasses that are on that high shelf in the kitchen, and counting the flatware only to discover
you don’t have enough right before the first
guest rings the bell.

Offer snacks before dinner. Tasty appetizers benefit the cook as much as the guests. Bowls of nuts, some crackers and cheese, and trays of crudité or hot apps scattered throughout the family room, living room or basement rec room will keep them busy munching while you finish up! Keep the kids entertained. For children, it seems like Thanksgiving dinner takes foreveeeer to
land on the table. Keep ‘em occupied with games out in the yard, movies up in the loft or craft projects in the rec room.

Above all, relax and enjoy. Let your guests marvel at the spaciousness of your new Schaeffer home,
while you perform culinary magic in your new kitchen! Learn more about our holiday-friendly
homes at Schaeffer Homes.

Because we always incorporate family values and exceptional customer service into our work, we’re able to build the highest-quality homes while providing a smooth and stress-free process to our homeowners.  

Our whole team is excited to announce that we’ve won a 2018 Guildmaster Award from GuildQuality! Given to companies who deliver incredible customer experiences, recipients “must achieve a recommendation rate of 90% as well as a certain response rate based on volume.” And guess what: we were the only builder in New Jersey to be awarded this honor. This means that we truly are the number one customer service choice in our beautiful state.

We’re always proud to be recognized for our hard work, but most importantly, we’re proud of our ability to satisfy each and every one of our clients. The people that we work with are what make work worth it! This award is a reminder to us that we have the greatest clients in the world.

If you’re looking for a living space that reflects you and your lifestyle, and exemplifies the real meaning of “there’s no place like home,” Schaeffer Family Homes would love to partner with you. This journey is one of the greatest you’ll ever take, and we want to make sure it’s as memorable as it should be.
