Real Estate Agent with REMAX Advance Realty II 3233262
Why would anyone want to buy a haunted home? Haunted homes are historically old and may have "vibes" from previous owners. True or not true is always in the eyes of the believer. If you're seeking a haunted home there are some listed in the current real estate listings under "haunted homes." There are sections in the United States which are listed as ghost towns or mini towns that have been abandoned. Still interested in a ghost home? The following steps and tips on how to secure your friendly ghost home will be helpful. 
Considering a ghost home
Many haunted homes are owned by historians. Most introductions to the sphere of ghosts are via television or stories. Owning a famous haunted home may add mystery, history and excitement to your life. A home that has difficulty selling, or has a bad reputation, is usually due to a serious structural flaw. Homes in a flood zone or earthquake area are harder to sell. Is a haunted home harder to sell? Most regular folks aren't seeking a haunted home. Will anyone overpay because a famous author once lived in the home and supposedly still hangs out there? Probably not; most folks can't afford to spend that kind of money on a whim. Your real estate dream of owning a haunted home is attainable by following a few key real estate financial principles. 
Rules of engagement when choosing a haunted home
If you have decided that you want to own a ghost home or a haunted house, keep to some simple rules that may help your money not disappear!Check the multiple listing services and real estate agents who are familiar with haunted home purchases. Consult with your attorney as with any real estate house purchase and apply for a mortgage. Assuming the home appraises, a mortgage company may be ready to lend money for your haunted home purchase. Your heart may be sold on a particular haunted home, but it is critical to have the house evaluated and a home inspection report issued. If the home is historically very old and in need of huge amounts of repairs, it may not be fiscally sound for you to continue with the home purchase.
Ghost towns 
Are you a historian and seeking to live in ghost town? Most ghost towns are set in areas where the economy was boom or bust: mining towns and ghost towns failed due to eminent domain when the state built highways or trains which passed through the town and destroyed the economy. If you are trying to confirm an area as a ghost town, check with the local historical society and town records.
Factors that deem a home haunted
Strange occurring events can often be explained, but sometimes these events are unexplainable. Humans are easily convinced or swayed by suggestion. Don't assume that because you hear chains banging against the wall, your home is haunted. There may be a more logical explanation. The house may be over a hundred years old and the plumbing is struggling to work and causing noises. Banging and knocking may be the house settling or rodents in the walls. If you are convinced that the home you are purchasing is a haunted home, enjoy and keep a journal, as future historians may be thrilled to read of your adventures.
