RE/MAX agent Jake Palmer had been sitting on a listing for quite some time. Shortly after Christmas last year, an offer on the house was made and accepted, and the couple who currently owns the home packed their items in preparation to move out once the sale was closed upon. Shortly before the date that the sale was to be finalized, the buyer backed out and forfeited the offer, leaving the homeowners in a pickle.
The “Sold” banner had to be removed from the sale sign in the house’s yard, and any real estate agent will tell you how difficult it is to reintroduce a house to the market after it was considered sold. Potential buyers naturally presume something is wrong with the property. Haunted often crosses people’s minds. So the listing grew stale with little interest. Jake needed to do something soon with this house, so he became rather creative.
