Haunted Houses Ain’t Cheap

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just because a house comes with a few extra ghostly occupants, it doesn’t mean it comes cheap.

That’s the scoop from haunted real estate experts Bonnie Vent – who’s aided in the sale of spooky homes – and Mary Pope-Handy, who collects creepy tales from paranormal real estate agents on

According to the agents, many people looking to buy a new home often ask to see haunted properties because they think it’ll lower the value of the house, but they’re dead wrong.

Vent says, “People are willing to put up with whatever if the house is cheap, but haunted homes aren’t actually cheap unless a murder just occurred there. That brings the value down.”

Adds Pope-Handy: “After five years though, that house goes up in value. We saw that with the Sharon Tate house. To me it’s just creepy. You don’t want a haunted house if the lights are flickering.”
