Would You Buy a ‘Haunted’ House?
For non-superstitious buyers, investing in a potentially haunted property could result in a bargain purchase. Research shows that 1 in 5 sellers would lower their asking price in order to sell their ‘haunted’ property. According to Richard Tugwell, director at Together, a mortgage provider, “People would be willing to lower the price of their home by 10 per cent because it’s believed to be haunted.” Potential buyers in the North East were the most discouraged from buying a property with a supernatural presence, as 56% said they’d be unlikely to purchase, while the figure dropped to 37% in the South East.
