If you were house hunting and found a property that you liked but then found out it had the reputation of being haunted, would you be more or less lightly to want to buy it, or would it depend on other factors? If so, what would they be?

I wouldn't have a problem moving into a haunted house - but, I wouldn't move in just for that reason. You still have to look at the local amenities and how close and accessible they are .. pub, schools, corner shops, large shopping areas, excorcist offices .. the usual .. :D

I see you name the pub on your first priority ;) lol

If someone said a house was haunted, it wouldn't bother me, I would still buy it if I liked the look of it.

I went to church on Monday and got talking to someone that said that her friends house is up for sale now. She told me that all houses around the area where going for around £125,000 but her friends house was going for £40,000. The reason why is because it is haunted. I wish I knew where it was I would look into it myself.

The friend in question did commit suicide in her house, she hung herself. She got to the stage where she missed her husband so much she just couldn't live each day without him, so she commit suicide. As soon as the house went up some drug takers took it (not sure what happened there if there was any deaths or not added into the house.) but now the house is back up for sale.

I personally would find the idea of living in a haunted house a good thing. I know there are people out there that would tell me that I wouldn't if I had lived through a bad haunting, but I would at least have the answers I am looking for.

wouldnt deter me at all. Having spent 16 years of my life being sent around the country to live in locations, many of which were badly haunted, think i cud cope....unless it was Amityville in which case I might pass. Or poss the House on Haunted HIll

Actually most of the stuff in regards to the Amityville house were made up, so that shouldn't be a problem, unless this is some other Amityville you're talking about (the one here in the States, as in The Amityville Horror movies that came out in the 1970s-80s, or is this some other one on your side of the pond?).

Do you mean that large wet barrier between the UK and other areas?
LOL
Humour tends to stop on one side of it strangely
