One of our clients did.  Her person was certain that the house was haunted.  Since our client knew she was a devout Catholic, she brought in the local priest to do an exorcism of the ghost...he did, and the woman did not hear the ghost again...A

Not I but I recall some stories from my real estate licensing classes and someone mentioned about the sale of Houdini's house back in the day.   Not haunted but I believe it might have been a part of the follow-up discussion.

The house haunted by a deceased real estate agent who, prior to her demise, was terribly upset she was passed over for the listing.   The agent now roams the house pointing out items that were once the home's amenities.

A local board sued for injunction to prevent the dissemination of the story to protect the home's value and the reputation of the nationally recognized franchise.

Yes. A man that had dies was frequently seen leaving bed upstairs, and walking to a the window in front of house. Before selling it, we had renters in there, and the tenant finally asked if anyone had died in the house.

I have not, but there is an old house in town which has had multiple owners over the years.  During ownership by these unrelated people, the oldest daughter has died in various ways - sick, tragic car accident, etc.

A haunting......let's see.  Kind of a haunting. This really old guy didn't like the fact that some person was moving into the neighboring property on 10 acres so he started doing crazy wacko stuff to scare them away and not buy the property. Course he got caught and went to a haunted jail. That's where the story really took off....

Not that I know of. 

There was once a 'happening' at an open house where a buyer came with her agent & asked me if the lady had died in the house. I said no because that's what her kids had told me. Then the buyer said, well, she's standing right behind you. I have to leave now & she left with her agent.

Not that I know of BUT I worked in a haunted movie theater as an usher, parking lot attendant, changed the marquee letters, & once a month scraped gum from the auditorium chairs and floors and washed the carpets.

One Saturday morning I was scraping gum and heard the front door open and footsteps up the stairway. There was a place in the auditorium where you could see into the mezzanine. I saw the office door open and close but saw no person. I ran up the stairs unlocked the office and no one was there. I looked everyplace...there was no one there!

I venture to say that all abodes have some dynamic we cannot see. Whether it be of a lingering positive dynamic like nature or a dark force unseen presence it can be sanctified by turning the subject property into a house of prayer. Prayer to God is the ultimate cleansing force... bar none by all....

I have never sold a 'haunted' house.

However, some houses I sold haunted me.
Sometimes buyers love what they love and can hear nothing else.

Those sell for more in my area...  Some spirits have a hard time breakin' on through to the other side as Jim crooned. They are like the lingering house guest always late for the party. Not the first to arrive but the last to leave. It's a letting go, move along time management issue not a character flaw really Shannon Jones .

I just read this article in my news feed.

Survey: 13% of Owners Think Their House Is Haunted

While 1 in 3 Americans say they don’t want to live in a haunted house, over 10% say they have shadows, hot-cold spots, odd pet behavior and a “feel” in certain rooms.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  – Haunted houses are popular attractions this time of year, but most Americans say they wouldn’t consider living in one. However, a majority of those who believe they currently live in a home that is haunted say the spooky happenings they’ve experienced are not reason enough to move, according to realtor.com’s annual Halloween survey released today.

A realtor.com annual Halloween survey of more than 2,000 Americans found that 13% believe they live in a home that is haunted, and a majority of them – 54% – knew or suspected the house was haunted before moving in. However, most (62%) said they’re not likely to consider buying a home rumored to be haunted. Still, of that 13% who believe they share space with spectral residents, 56% have not considered moving.

“Haunted houses typically draw big crowds this time of year, but we wanted to see how many people actually believe they live in one,” says Lexie Holbert, realtor.com housing and lifestyle expert. “Although only a small percentage of respondents indicated they believe their home is haunted, it was surprising to see how many are perfectly comfortable sharing their space with spirits from the world beyond.”

The West led the nation with the most respondents who believe they live in a haunted home at 18%, followed by 13% in the Northeast, 11% in the Midwest and 10% in the South.

Of those who suspected their house was haunted prior to moving in, Northeasterners were most comfortable living with spirits at 76%, followed by those in the West at (57%), the South (51%) and the Midwest (35%).

My next door neighbor's house has a grave marker in the yard for the cat.  The owner sold embalming fluid, so I always imagine he made a trade of sorts to acquire it.  It's from the last owner who lived there for probably 50 years.  No known ghosts.
