Come channel your dark side of staging. Here’s your chance to create your spookiest home décor – the one that haunts you in your nightmares. Move Inc., the operators of realtor.com®, recently launched a new Halloween-themed interactive feature, “Build Your Own Haunted House,” that allows you to create your own spooky home to share with prospects or peers.
You can build a spooky home, complete with animation and sounds, and then “share the scare” via e-mail or through your social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. The new feature will be available until midnight on Oct. 31.
Build your haunted house from a menu of options – carefully selecting your architecture, lighting, and lawn features, including a customizable for-sale sign, jack-o-lanterns, tombstones, or skeletons. You also can add flying witches, ghosts, crows, or bats and several sound options to complete the fright, from wailing ghosts and shrieking witches to thunder and wind. To add even more scare, click on “zombify me” to turn your headshot into a zombie.
“At realtor.com, we want to make the home experience enjoyable, and what’s more fun than having the opportunity to build your own haunted house and share it with friends and family,” says Nate Johnson, chief marketing officer for realtor.com®.
