For a while there the housing market was absolutely bonkers, and though we seem to be on the tail end of the madness, it's still incredibly difficult to find a home.

A new study from Real Estate Witch found that 73% of potential home buyers say they’d consider purchasing a haunted house and 52% would even use it to their advantage to pay negotiate a lower price.

Though some might find ghosts frightening, more buyers are scared off when purchasing a new home by mold (57%), foundation issues (56%), termites (54%), asbestos (54%), and water damage (54%).
