Morning Minute: Haunted houses don't scare away some buyers

It takes more than a few things going bump in the night to scare off 32 percent of potential homebuyers who say they would be willing to buy a  “haunted” house, but they expect to get a sizable discount on the price of the property first, according to a survey by

The National Association of REALTORS® Styled, Staged and Sold blog covers additional details of the survey including the fact that while some buyers are OK with the idea of spirits sharing their home, they don’t want to see or hear them.
