Hong Kong is home the largest housing market in the world and thanks to a handy haunted house database, you could end up reducing the cost of a potential new home from 10 to 30 percent.

A Hongza house, which translates into ‘calamity house’ can lose its value over night if listed on the Hongza database, it has even been known to affect the value of neighboring homes.

It’s estimated that millions of dollars are being lost every year in property sales, though there is little home owners and real estate agents can do to remove their homes from a Hongza list once it has been added. This, of course, hasn’t stopped some homeowners from attempting to legally remove their properties from lists.

“If an estate agent acting for a purchaser knows, or ought to have known of the occurrence of a tragic incident in a property, and knew or ought reasonably to have known that this would materially affect the value of the property, that agent would owe a duty to alert its client to that fact,” said Judge Benjamin Yu regarding a Hongza list lawsuit.

    I had a chance 5 years ago to live in a home where a man had been shot and killed by police after a standoff. I absolutely refused to do it. Even with a massive price cut, I said no way. I’ve heard that no one has been able to stay in that house for longer than a year.

    Isn’t it also true that in Great Britain, the real estate agent or current homeowner have to reveal if the home they are selling is haunted? If they don’t, the new owner can take them to court.

    I think that’s something I heard about 10 years ago.
