Many buyers aren’t spooked at the idea of buying a haunted house

Happy Halloween! Would you be willing to buy a home that might be haunted?

There are a few caveats though. The majority of those willing to buy a haunted property would expect some kind of price discount on the property and there are certain “ghostly occurrences” that would send even the bravest buyers running.

  • Levitating objects – 75 percent
  • Moving objects – 63 percent
  • Ghost sightings – 63 percent
