Find out if your house is haunted this Halloween – and how that affects its value!

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to ask yourself whether your home could be haunted…

New research by the Portman Building Society (now Nationwide) has found that one in three Brits claim to have lived in a haunted house at some point in their lives.

So why not take our spooky new quiz to find out if your current property could be haunted?


How will it affect the value of your home if it is haunted?

There is no precise answer to this question, but we know that buyers across the country love properties that come with an intriguing story. After all, if your home has a ghostly tale to tell it is far more likely to capture the imagination of prospective buyers.

If your property’s ghoulish past has already become common knowledge in the local area it is likely that it will attract significant interest when you put it on the market, not least from the local press who will be keen to cover the story. And a fascinating history will be the obvious starting point for your estate agent when it comes to marketing the house and conducting viewings.

There are certainly many examples of people buying haunted homes and some have been sold well above asking price after their spookiness provoked widespread interest and led to multiple offers.

With a third of Brits admitting they believe in ghosts and paranormal activity, there are plenty of people out there who will be interested in your property – even if it does prove to be haunted!

So take our quiz to find out if your home could be haunted and, regardless of the result, get in touch with your local Leaders branch to find out more about selling and achieving the best possible price.
