Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted Houses

Recently, one of mine and my mom’s (Kathleen Oliver) favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, featured two of her employees going through a Universal Studios’ Haunter House. She had cameras follow them through and let’s just say the gentleman in the video reacted the same way I would. Though, it was hilariously entertaining to watch, he was really frightened at some points, to see the video click HERE.

In watching this poor fellow’s low tolerance for hunted houses, I began to wonder if there are real haunted houses around us in the Dallas and Collin county areas. Then, I remembered something I learned in RealEstate School about a homeowner having to disclose if a home is haunted or has ghost. You see, if your house is “KNOWN” as a haunted house around town, you will need to disclose this information to a prospective buyer. These homes are said to be stigmatized properties.

Letting curiosity get the better of me, I decided to do some research on stigmatized properties. The National Association of Realtors did a survey and here are the surprising results they found:


Haunted Real Estate Survey
41% of respondents would buy a place with reported ghost sightings
36% of respondents wouldn’t object to levitating objects
15% of respondents would pay full market value of the home
19% of respondents would take a 31-50% discount

So here is my question, would a supposed haunting scare you from buying a property? What if the said property is the house of your dreams and you don’t believe in ghost anyways? Or maybe you are buying the property as an investment property and you never plan to personally live in it? As a Realtor, I have to respect my clients’ views and that will always be my number one priority but I also have to inform them the strength we could now have in a negotiation type setting.
