Brits move af­ter para­nor­mal ex­pe­ri­ence

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

As­tudy has proved peo­ple are most likely to move home af­ter a para­nor­mal ex­pe­ri­ence.

Re­search con­ducted by spe­cial­ist in­surance bro­ker Tow­er­gate has shown 49 per cent of Bri­tish peo­ple have ex­pe­ri­enced para­nor­mal ac­tiv­ity in their home and one in eight peo­ple liv­ing in Bri­tain have been forced to move out be­cause they feared their hum­ble abode was plagued by spir­its.

Speak­ing about the re­sults, a spokesper­son from Tow­er­gate, Drew Wother­spoon, said: “When there are sto­ries of some­thing strange in a neigh­bour­hood this can be a huge turn off for po­ten­tial buy­ers. Some peo­ple thrive on sto­ries of haunted houses, and can use tales of things go­ing bump in the night to their ad­van­tage. What is clear from this re­search is that spooky vibes can be real deal break­ers when it comes to buy­ing and sell­ing prop­er­ties – and this makes it a scary time for sell­ers.”

Ad­di­tional re­search from the study re­vealed 30 per cent of home­own­ers have ad­mit­ted to ask­ing for a 20 per cent drop in the ask­ing price if a house was haunted.
