Never stigmatize a property

I know it can be easy to get wrapped up in the stories of the home sellers but when it comes to things like haunted houses or spiritual mishaps, don't speak of it to potential buyers. It is advised by both agents and home owners to avoid the conversations of such things regardless how they feel about it. You are not obligated to say yes or no.

I have heard of people doing this, mostly home owners, and it resulted in their homes being on the market for much longer. It interrupts sales and causes people to look at other options.

For some people, it might be a selling point but for most it just isn't. This is especially true for families with children. I once saw a man lose a sale over a kid finding out there was hauntings in the house.

That is a smart idea to keep in mind and not something I think a lot of people would consider until something bad comes of it. Good call to share on this though and keep other sellers informed.

I find it funny how a child can cause a couple to not buy a home. If my kids were afraid to move into a home I loved and was buying, they would have to suck it up and get over it. parents let their kids have their way too often these days and they grow up to be spoiled sensitive adults.

@brant  While I do agree with this, a child's fear shouldn't factor in as much as it does, you have to put your feet in the shoes of the parents. A lot of parents are not looking to add any more stress to their child's life with having to move, start over, make new friends, and so on.
