‘Stigmatized’ homes can be bargains

Realtor.com® stated that "62 Percent of Respondents are Open to Purchasing a Haunted Home" that is according to a 2013 Realtor.com Haunted Housing Report.
Stigmatized homes can be a bargain and are a great investment.A buyer can expect to pay 10 to 25 percent off regular market prices for stigmatized homes, said real estate consultant Randall Bell of Bell Anderson & Saunders, which specializes in assessing disaster-damaged properties and murder homes.
