If you are looking for a new home then you may want to think outside of the box if you are having a hard time finding a house in the area you want at a price that's in your buying range. One of the things you can try doing is to specifically look for a house that others may not find as attractive or acceptable as you will for the creepy factor. Hew are some of the specific types of houses you may want to look for:
A house with rumors surrounding it
If there is a creepy house in the area that you want with a strange history or a bad story attached to it, then find out if it is for sale or if the owners would consider selling it. An example would be that old house on the corner that kids have walked by for years and told scary stories about. It may even be that the house isn't on the market anymore because the family gave up, but if you let them know you are interested in it, you may just find that you can get it for a pretty good price.
A house where a murder, suicide, or other tragedy took place
If there is a house where a murder, suicide, or other major tragedy has recently taken place then this can cause many people to shy away from the house. However, if you are the type of person who isn't going to be bothered by living in a house where horrible things have happened, then you may be able to get the sellers to accept an offer that will make you more than happy.
A house on land that can scare many people off
Sometimes it isn't the house that can scare potential buyers off, but it is the land that the house sits on. Some people find a house located in a remote location and surrounded by certain types of trees, such as weeping willows, to be a bit scary. This can be especially true if the house is located in a bit of a valley where the wind can come through he area sounding like a ghostly howl in the evening time. If you like the idea of living in a remote area like this where others can be scared off, you may be able to claim that place for a very nice price you will be more than excited about.
