Forty-eight percent of survey respondents said items inside the home shifted on their own, 47% said certain rooms felt haunted, 46% said they would feel touched, and 44% said their home had hot and cold spots, according to realtor.com®’s fourth annual Haunted Real Estate Report.

“Moving into a new home is a really exciting time, but finding out that your new abode has an unwanted guest can definitely put a damper on the celebration,” says Nate Johnson, chief

Hi All, 

I have a beautiful listing in the Cedar Falls neighborhood, right across from the park. Just thought I would throw it out there if anyone has interested buyers. c It has gorgeous mountain views from every window and is the largest floorplan in the neighborhood. Bring your buyers or send them to the open house this Sunday from 1:30-4:30.

In a recent ad campaign, real estate startup Bungalo has announced that throughout the month of October, they will be checking their listed properties for paranormal activity.

The real estate company even hired actual paranormal investigators to visit their properties in order to find out if they have ghosts. The investigators include Jeremy Rettig of Genesis Paranormal Services, as well as Becky Vickers who has appeared on the television shows Ghost Adventures and Ghost Stories.

Josh Stolz, who is the creative director at Bungalo, stated, “This is our first real campaign that takes a step into a bit more of a creative territory,” adding, “We wanted to show both aspects: the regular inspection combined with the paranormal inspection.”

The overwhelming number of responses lead us to a lot of good material, including simple explanations of what listing agents do, giving advice, one-liners and the all-powerful “good luck.”

Here are our favorite responses. Try out the ones you like the next time you come up against this objection.

Use a one-liner

Sometimes, all you need is a sentence or two to get the job done. Short, sweet and to the point, here are some of the

In an attempt to get ahead of looming outside forces, broker-owned multiple listing service Northwest MLS is changing its rules to allow the public display of buyer broker commissions, starting October 1.

The rule changes will allow the NWMLS’s 30,000 agent and broker members to publish the amount of commission the seller is offering a buyer’s broker on the subscribers’ websites along with other listing details.
