The family had no idea when they moved into their new home that they were not alone. Floorboards creaked above them even when nobody was upstairs, doors slammed when there was no draft and things were not where they had been left. The house was haunted.

If your home is beset with mournful moaning and groaning ghouls, it may be time to move. Unfortunately, such sinister spirits may make your house difficult to sell. That's why we've compiled this list of tips and tricks for selling your haunted home - Happy Halloween!

1. Do some research; look up the history of your house and find out who may have passed away inside of it. If the being is benevolent, maybe you can all learn to co-exist. If not, look into your state's legal requirements; you may be obligated to disclose the grisly history of your house.

2. Look up a local medium, psychic, or priest. Even if you don't believe in spooks it may put a potential buyer's mind at rest, no pun intended.

3. If there are garish ghosts, look up their descendents. Who knows, they may be interested to learn that a great-great-great grandparent is lurking about the old family home. They may be able to put the spirit at rest, or you could luck out and they might buy the home!

4. If all else fails, just go with it. Decorate the house with fake cobwebs, splash a little fake blood over the bathtub and maybe pick up an old wheelchair to move around from room to room. There are definitely people out there who would be thrilled to own a haunted house, even if you're not one of them.
