The Clown Motel

Would you buy a haunted house? According to a survey by Realtor.com, 33% out of 1,000 people said they would! Fall is a slow time of the year in the real estate business. The kids are back in school and winter is coming up fast when most people do not want to move. With anxious sellers and fewer buyers, it is the best time of the year for a bargain on a home purchase - especially a haunted house. But buyer beware, this year’s “Top 10 Haunted Homes For Sale” list from TopTenRealEstateDeals.com has ten ‘spooktacular’ listings that might raise the hair on the backs of the necks of even the bravest home buyer!

The Clown Motel, which has recently garnered fame from its appearance on shows like "Ghost Adventures" and exposure on the internet, is now for sale. For $900,000, a new owner will inherit the collection of clowns and motel.

Looking for a new home that is a bit different than the two-story colonial with a white picket fence, two-car garage, pool and lush lawn? How about a house in Texas that is filled with people, but none of them are alive? A manicured and stately house from the street like all the neighboring houses, but bring your big-boy pants if you plan on going inside. Possibly a Bahamas castle where a Nazi sympathizer once lived, or the Play Misty For Me cliff house where Clint Eastwood's maniac stalker stabber careened through the glass door to her death on the jagged cliffs below? Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch, where some of his fans believe his spirit still lives, is lovely and for sale but? Or a New York gilded-age mansion that was once one of the most beautiful homes in the United States but now looks like something from a Hannibal Lecter nightmare?

Could it be ghosts in the new home, a maniac in the attic, or something even worse? Could that dream home become a nightmare? No one ever said buying a home was easy. What difference could a few ghosts make?
