Do homes near cemeteries sell for less than comparable homes further away? Though these "spooky" homes may take longer to sell, there is no stigma attached when it comes to price, according to an analysis by national brokerage Redfin.
In fact, the online housing marketplace said that homes near cemeteries actually sell for more money. Redfin looked at prices of homes less than 50 feet from a cemetery, and compared those to houses 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 yards away.
"The numbers indicate that on average, homes near cemeteries are slightly smaller, but sell for more per square foot," Redfin said on its website. "On average, homes closest to cemeteries sold for $162 per square foot, whereas the homes located more than 500 yards away sold for $145 per square foot."
Meanwhile, homes adjacent to cemeteries may take longer to find the right buyer, Redfin found.
Homes less than 50 feet away from cemeteries took 48 days to sell, whereas those located more than 500 yards away took 39 days to sell, on average.
