Would you buy a haunted house? 1 in 3 say yes
People are fairly evenly split into three camps on whether they would purchase a haunted house, according to a Realtor.com survey.
Respondents who would not consider buying a spirit-occupied place (35%) just slightly edged out those who would (32%) or might (33%) consider it.
Nearly one-third said they would need a price discount of up to 20% to take the leap, however, while 2% said they’d actually pay extra for the privilege.
As for what paranormal activity they’d be willing to live with, nearly two-thirds said they would not be deterred by warm or cold spots, and almost half said they’d tolerate ghostly footsteps and slamming doors. And a hardy 41% said apparitions would not scare them away.
