Looking for something a little “Extra” in your next home? Perhaps bats in the belfries, a strange thumping sounds in the walls, on voices from the basement? Well then you’re in luck… Just in time for Halloween The Cascade Team Real Estate presents our Haunted House Hunting Checklist!
While some unexpected ghosts may come with a house, most of the surveyed consumers agree on one thing: They prefer to live in a home that is ghost-free. They’re much more willing to live next to a haunted house, though. Nearly 43% of respondents were willing to live next to a house they believed is haunted.
Thirty-seven percent of respondents say they had a feeling the home they wanted to buy was haunted, but they decided to move in anyway, the survey showed. Twenty-three percent of survey respondents said that if they moved into a haunted house, they would try to flush ghosts out with a renovation, such as with a new kitchen or floor replacement.

Nearly 60% of consumers who claim to live in a haunted house say they didn’t know their house was haunted until after they moved in, reveals a new survey from realtor.com®.
What makes a house haunted? Strange noises and shadows are the spookiest occurrences reported by homeowners. Forty-eight percent of survey respondents said items inside the home shifted on their own, 47% said certain rooms felt haunted, 46% said they would feel touched, and 44% said their home had hot and cold spots, according to realtor.com®’s fourth annual Haunted Real Estate Report.
Selling Your Home Shouldn’t Be Spooky!
“Moving into a new home is a really exciting time, but finding out that your new abode has an unwanted guest can definitely put a damper on the celebration,” says Nate Johnson, chief marketing officer at realtor.com®. “We conduct this survey annually and it’s always interesting to see the results. This year, we were surprised by how many people had unknowingly moved into a haunted house at some point in their lives, and even more so by how many people knew and decided to move in regardless.”Cary W Porter on
