Halloween is Coming, and Coldwell Banker Shares Tips on Keeping Your House From Being Haunted

Share News:

Just like the Centers for Disease Control giving tips on surviving the zombie apocalypse, Coldwell Banker’s Blue Matter blog shares hilarious ideas on how to rid your home of ghosts, ghouls, and vampires.

I love that many of the tips offered come from the very real realm of television:

” … if seven seasons of Supernatural have taught me anything it’s that you can line your home’s doorway and window sills with salt to prevent the unwanted from entering the premises.”

Ah, yes — I am going to hitch my plans for survival on the wagon of blogger’s TV viewing. Other gems include:

“Let’s be honest. You just have to be faster than the next slowest person to evade a monster attack. Invest in a treadmill and use it regularly.”


“When are monster least likely to bother you? When the sun is out of course. Have you ever heard of the boogeyman attacking in the sunlight? We know vampires don’t. Never seen a werewolf do that either. So why live in Yuma, AZ? Well it’s in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most amount of sunlight in a year.”

What would you do to secure your home against a monster attack?
