It's hard to afford a house these days. A large amount of people don't mind taking on new roommates. Even if those roommates are ghosts.

I love horror movies. A common theme in some of the best horror movies is the dreaded haunted house. What goes on in the films? Doors slam, thermostats breaks, floors creak and sometimes apparitions can be seen? That is true in movies and some people report seeing similar occurrences in real life.

These houses are places that people like to avoid at all costs. Most people don't want to visit or go near a haunted house but there is a growing number of people who wouldn't mind owning one. Most real estate agents have to tell you if a house is legally haunted and I guess a lot of people don't mind any more.

CBS News reports that according to a new survey from Zillow, 35% of future home buyers would not mind if it was haunted. In fact, the survey also mentioned that buy a known haunted house as long as the home came with a cool feature like a pool or a large backyard. I would just be worried about what is buried in that big backyard.
