What To Do If You Buy A Haunted House In Minnesota
Whether or not you think ghosts are real, the idea of purchasing a property that's rumored to be haunted should give you pause. Jenna Taubel, host of the "Good Money Moves" podcast talked about financial implications during a recent episode.
Jenna shared tips on what to do if you think you've bought a haunted house including conducting some basic maintenance and updating to address mysterious sounds, drafts, or flickering lights, and then if you're still experiencing weird things Tabuel suggested reaching out to a medium or psychic.
LISTEN TO THE EPISODE:
"Good Money Moves" is hosted by Jenna Taubel from First Alliance Credit Union and Andy Brownell from News Talk 1340 KROC-AM & 96.9 FM.
Jenna told Andy, "1 in 5 Americans claim they've actually seen a ghost" and more importantly to the discussion they were having "48% of homeowners believe in the supernatural."
Are you a believer? Do strange things happen in your house? Are there weird sounds that you can't explain? Maybe it's a ghost! And, that's a bad thing if you're trying to sell your home according to Taubel.
" According to one study, a haunted house usually sells for anywhere from 10% to 25% less than market value, and that’s because people are just less likely to buy a haunted house."
Minnesota law specifically states that you don’t have to reveal if your home is haunted. So you probably shouldn't if you're looking to get the most money! (You also don’t have to disclose if the house was the site of a suicide, accidental death, or natural death.)
