In a survey, 23% of Americans said they’ve lived in a haunted house and an additional 20% may have.

The Florida Realtor Association posted an article about a survey done by Toluna Research, in which people were interviewed online about whether they have lived in a haunted house and if they would consider moving into a haunted house. 

When asked if they would ever consider moving into a haunted house, 54% of respondents said there was no way, while 21% were prepared to brave any spooky happenings plaguing the house, and 21% were on the fence and responded with “maybe.”

Interestingly, survey responses weren’t that different if the homebuyer didn’t actually buy the home. When asked what they would do if they inherited a haunted house, 51% said they would sell it immediately, but 23% would try to flush the ghosts out by renovating the home; 20% are willing to take the risk and simply move in, while 6% said they’d tear the place down.
