On Sunday, my husband and I received an offer on her house. We are going to accept it and are selling because our home is haunted. I know it sounds silly, but if you've experienced what we have you'd be selling too. There are at least two ghosts in the home that have been terrorizing us. This is the first time we are selling a home so I asked my husband if we have to disclose to the buyers that our home is haunted. He told me we need to stay quiet and just sell the house. He says it's their problem once they buy it not ours. I feel guilty and am wondering if we should say something. I'm not sleeping or eating because of the ghosts and whether or not it's wrong to stay silent. What would you do if you were us? I would want someone to tell me, but I also know we need to get out of here.
