Today, I was closing the deal on this beautiful $200k ranch in the country. The buyer soon pulls up and we get to discussing the contract terms, soon the buyer asks the seller," Wow why is this house going so cheap?" The seller replies, "Do you believe in ghosts?" There goes my $8,000 commission. FML

Wow. That is totally screwed up. I hope the seller was saying that as a joke, if the seller wasn't then they are a total idiot.

You got the wrong buyers. If I had the money, I would've bought the house BECAUSE of the ghosts. Unless they were vengeful spirits. I'm sorry though, that really sucks. Especially in this global economy XP.

well techniqually buyer had the rights to know everything about the property. it's more about making the right deal for the buyer n seller than making the middle man happy

I am so sorry, I hope you can sell it for a higher price.

You might be able to find someone who really likes haunted houses willing to pay more.

I'm sorry, this is a real FML! There isn't anything conceivable to get out of this situation that is legal or moral! Your 'seller' is a total idiot, and should probably be taken out back and put out of his misery. Talk to the buyer, and maybe you can work something out. Maybe you can explain just how astronomically stupid your 'seller' is, and how you are very sorry that he was let out of his cage. Find a ghost enthusiast is a good option.

Well the seller is out 200k, you are only out 8k. Stop crying.

Usually if the seller is trying to sell the house because of the ghosts they probably don't care if they are down 200k. And they they are selling it for 200k which really cheap those types of houses so they are probably paid much more for it to start with and are at a loss

I'd hate to buy a haunted house. Never seen a spirit, but why start now?

Dude, definitely FYL. I agree with #6-- find a ghost enthusiast.

lol, it is quite a shame the seller screwed it up like that.. but hey he should have rented the house to wannabe ghostbusters!!

that sux horribly...FYL!
