Six of the most haunted houses in the U.S.

  • (MoneyWatch) Have you ever seen an eerie pale figure in the window or jerked awake because of a bump in the night?


    Apparently, nearly a third of Americans have. According to Realtor.com's Haunted Housing Report, 35 percent of respondents claim they have lived or are living in a haunted house.


    The report also provided some warning signs that a house could be haunted: A cemetery on the property, more than 100 years old, quick transitions in owners, an unexplainable low price or close proximity to a battlefield.


    Some of the most haunted homes in the country meet more than a few of those creepy criteria. Ed Kushins, a global travel expert and founder of home swapping site HomeExchange.com, offered up a list of six of the most haunted homes in the country.


    Most of these aren't for sale, but you can at least step inside the haunted, historic abodes. A few even offer the ability to stay overnight and sleep in the same rooms where gruesome murders took place -- if you're into that kind of thing.
