Survey reveals how folks feel about homes that are haunted!
While some folks love to go to haunted houses for Halloween, others don’t have to go far because they actually live in one. And while you may be asking yourself what type of person would want to live in a haunted home, it turns out a few spooks doesn’t turn off all homebuyers.
According to a poll by Realtor.com, when confronted with the possibility of buying a haunted home, buyers tend to fall into three categories:
18% of people wouldn’t be affected by a haunted home when making a decision to purchase a place, while that number goes up to almost 25% for those 35 to 54.
Then there are the people who would be willing to buy a haunted house if they get something in return, with 15% willing to buy it if the price was cheaper, while 9% would buy it if it had a larger kitchen or was in a better neighborhood.
But for some haunted is something they just can’t deal with, with 49% of buyers saying there’s absolutely nothing that would convince them to buy a haunted home, with 61% of buyers over 55 falling into this category.
