Haunted Houses - Buyer Beware!

Ipswich, Massachusetts is home to 59 houses that were constructed in the First Period, or 1625-1725, of English settlement. Essex County is home to more First Period homes than any where else in the country. That kind of history means your chances of coming across a "haunted house" in your home search are higher. Would you buy a home that was suspect of a poltergeist or that cabin in the woods? Fall in love with a house that looks like the one from Amityville or Beetlejuice? Interestingly, whether or not the property has been the site of an alleged para psychological or supernatural phenomenon shall not be deemed a material fact required to be disclosed in a real estate transaction. SO ASK! Sellers are required to answer truthfully IF ASKED! Buyers BEWARE!!!
