Haunted Real Estate
|"A man who limits his interests, limits his life." - Vincent Price (1911-1993)|
Hello, folks. My name is Roland and I am in charge of our Haunted Real Estate office. We are always on the look out for haunted houses, hotels, land, restaurants . . . anything haunted to list for sale.
"Who in their right mind would want to buy haunted real estate?" you might wonder. I admit the thought may seem absurd to most people.
But there are those who shop for haunted property to purchase, seeking out more spirited lodgings. Among those with this outlook are writers, actors and other artists who seek fodder for their imaginations, inciting them to greater and greater heights of creativity. Then there are others who think having a ghost is interesting. Some people just don't want to be alone!
As portrayed in the notable Hollywood production The Amityville Horror, it would certainly seem that promoting ones house as having ghosts would have devastating effects on ones property values. The house with a checkered past that has been on the market for years, the beautiful estate being offered at a fraction of its value, and the long abandoned building all broadcast distress!, and sellers should expect to provide discounts to any buyers even remotely interested in a purchase.
However, there are realtors who believe in and have profited from the existence of a resident phantom. These creative agents believe that ghosts sell real estate and one can actually increase a property's value by having such a presence. Some realtors specialize in speculative real estate. They seek out listings and market them as having a ghost. But not all houses are marketed so creatively.
How do you know if the house you are about to purchase has a resident ghostie real estate? In the U.S., many states have laws regarding the disclosure of such issues to the buyer. But not all states have such laws, and there aren't many ghost inspection services available.
