1 in 6 Americans believe their home is haunted, new report finds

We’re almost one month away from Halloween and what better way to celebrate than highlighting a chilling new haunted house report?

All Star Home recently surveyed more than 1,000 Americans and found that one in six believe their home is haunted.

Furthermore, two in five say they have experienced unusual or unexplained occurrences at home.

“Between unexplained noises or creepy figures in the dark, eerie encounters are on the rise,” Allison Hadley, a spokesperson for All Star Home, said in a statement.

Hadley added that the home maintenance and repair company’s “spine-tingling statistics” were not limited to creepy basements and dusty attics. “The bedroom is actually the #1 place for spooky situations,” Hadley explained.

More than one in three homeowners reported hearing unexplained sounds including footsteps and strange voices.

Researchers found that nearly one in five have seen apparitions or ghostly figures.

Another interesting statistic – 24% of survey respondents said they would buy a house that is haunted and pay, on average, $249,557 for it.
