Shadowy human figures, doors opening and closing themselves and bumps in the night. Although we associate haunted houses with Halloween, there are many homes that some say are haunted by ghosts or other supernatural beings. In fact, selling a home in Florida means the seller must disclose any facts or conditions about a property that have a substantial impact on its value that others cannot easily observe themselves. That would include any supernatural incidents. But buying a house that is reportedly haunted isn't all bad.  In fact, unnatural deaths and alleged hauntings typically drop a home’s price by about 20%, which may explain why Millennials are 13 times more likely than baby boomers to purchase a haunted house. Beyond generational differences, men are 2.5 times more likely to purchase a haunted home, and three times more likely to live in a home where someone was murdered. However, men are more likely to choose the first listing they find while women are more likely to ‘shop around’ and spend more time considering multiple option. But beware, in Florida the seller has no obligation to disclose homicides, suicides or deaths that occurred on the property (insert crack of thunder and flash of lightening along with a sinister laugh).
