Don’t Want to Buy a Haunted House? Do Your Research
A Realtor.com 2020 survey found that 13 percent of Americans believe their house is haunted, troubled by strange noises, shadows, cold spots, eerie feelings, and moving items. Roughly half of them knew or suspected as much before hauling in their boxes and have no plans to move. Most prefer to avoid the situation: 2/3rds of respondents said they were unlikely to move into a house that might be haunted. “What I’ve noticed in 30 years of being a REALTOR® is that the buyers bring their own energy, and the house has its own energy, and very often, they really connect well. And if they don’t, then usually the buyers don’t want to buy it, so it usually kind of works itself out. Just because something happened in a home does not mean that it’s a bad house,” said CAR Spokesperson Kelly Moye.
